Not a wine I had planned on purchasing because of my long-standing prejudice against Malbec (which, by the way, seems to be diminishing greatly with the current stable of Argentinian wines available on WineSale). However, we found this wine quite enjoyable. It is ruby in color with sour cherries, cedar, vanilla, plum and blackberries on the nose. This wine has fairly strong acidity and requests food be served with it for greater enjoyment. Vanilla, spice, ripe plums and cherries on the palate. Lovely long finish. We had this wine with "Bill's unintentionally blackened chicken" (chicken in Frank's hot sauce charred on the BBQ) and it was great! It is easy to see why Malbec and grilled meats are made for each other. This wine carries the fruit of the Shiraz with it as well - definitely give it a go! Having said all that, I have to admit I enjoyed the TB straight Shiraz a bit more - it's a complicated little number and therefore a bit more interesting (but would not have done well with the chicken).
