Plum, dusty strawberry, and blackberry along with sweet vanilla and chocolate aromas entice the nose with this voluptuous wine. The palate plays out with more not-quite-ripe blackberry and dark plum but also red currant and a tart cherry zing of acidity. Fine grained tannins here and that dusty dark quality that finishes with a little sweet spice...mmm...

2012 Malbec, Scooteney Flats
Scooteney Flats Vineyard
Full bodied, deep and powerful, this malbec is also smooth, velvety and supple. On the nose there is wet earth, chocolate, black cherry, licorice and spice. The palate follows with a medley of boysenberry, blueberry, and black plum that softly coats the tongue, turns to a mid-palate cherry and is followed by a concentrated finish of soft tannins and spice. Memorable. And delicious.
