Although most people think of Argentina when they hear Malbec, more and more excellent Malbec wines are being produced in Chile. Two thirds of the wine spent 8 months in French oak, imparting a hint of vanilla which melds seamlessly with soft tannins. Plums, sour cherries and violets are the dominant notes on this fresh, fruity wine. Drink now or cellar for up to 6 years.
