Mount Vernon Malbec 2009

Opaque with bright, blue/black rim. Penetrating nose lead by plum and blackberry, dark cherry, some chocolate and hint of anise. Rich, deep mouth with developing flavours as promised on the nose. Lively tannins with smooth texture. Good balance. Flavours develop in the glass. Impression of overall softness yet good firm finish. Long, lasting full fruited finish. Spice develops into a major feature the longer in the glass and adds to the overall complexity.

Decidedly a food wine and rich food at that.
