Alkoomi Malbec 2021


Always interesting to encounter a straight varietal Malbec, this one spends a year maturing in new French oak. Dark maroon with an alluring nose of chocolate, blackberries, black cherries, raisins, and smoked meats. A wine of moderate length, but there is good oak inclusion here. Ripe, with sleek yet firm tannins, it is a little chunky but enjoyable, nonetheless. Drink over the next six to eight years.
