A bold, inky purple in colour, this dense Malbec from Bodegas Escorihuela presents chocolate and sun warmed purple berries with savoury spice and herbal undertones. The palate is thick and chewy dominated by dark fruit and bittersweet chocolate. Warm, rich and concentrated in the mouth it lingers on with flavours of clove and cocoa.
This is a big wine, made for dense protein and grilled meat.
Initial review October 2010.
