2013 Red Willow Malbec

Midnight blue and black hues introduce an array of wonderful aromas like blackberry jam, blueberries, black plums, fresh leather, pie spices and pastry dough along with the unique qualities of grape skins and blood orange citrus. This generous and massive wine continues with boysenberries, cherries, blueberries, pomegranates and currants. Supported by understated oak, there is great lift throughout the delicious flavor profile exhibiting good structure, savory tannins and a tremendous finish.

The inky colored 2013 Malbec is a head turner! Creme de cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, smoked herbs and hints of spring flowers all emerge from this fabulously concentrated, medium to full-bodied, focused and structured beauty. It needs a few years of cellaring to be at its best, but it should deliver loads of pleasure through 2025. — Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
