Saracina Skid Row Vineyard Malbec 2011
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
Inky ruby. Ripe cherry, boysenberry and vanilla on the deeply perfumed nose and in the mouth. Round and appealingly sweet, offering juicy black and blue fruit flavors and a hint of smokiness. Finishes spicy and long, with an echo of vanilla and good cling.
A robust, very ripe style of red wine, this is deep in color and packed with fruity flavors that tend toward prune and raisin. A taste of celery comes up on the finish. Though not high in alcohol it feels full-bodied and rich in texture, and rather heavy.
