Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec 2014

A wonderful little Malbec sourced from the grapes of 200 independent producers throughout Mendoza, Argentina.

From the winemaker:  Purple-colored, the nose offers up plum and black cherry notes with a touch of black pepper. The palate is soft and round with ripe, saturated berry flavors. Finishes spicy and full with chewy tannins.
