HANDCRAFT ARTISAN COLLECTION

Malbec

TASTING NOTES

Tantalizing aromas of ripe plum and roasted coffee beans are followed by flavors of blueberry compote, cocoa and plum. This medium-bodied wine is juicy and smooth and showcases an optimal balance of acidity and plush, structured tannins—delicious by itself or with food. The finish is soft and lingering.

CHERYL'S TIP

"Perfect with Italian foods where the bold flavors pair beautifully with rich and savory dishes.”
