Silverdale, WA 12.9% alc. (Purchased on 1/24/15)
60% Malbec 40% Merlot
Aromas: Nose of dried cherries and some unidentifiable spice aromas.
Flavors: Some “sweet” cherry and berry fruit on entry, then, as the wine airs in the glass, it shows fairly tart acidity with flavors of pie cherry and understated leather. To my taste, the wine declines rapidly once poured.
Texture: Soft at the front of the palate; rather light in texture with little tannin.
Likely a fairly decent food wine that tastes more Italian than Argentinian to me. Old world style. Appears to sell for around $10 at regular retail. Lacks real character. Not a repeat buy for me.
