2015 Amalaya Malbec

Amalaya Estate

Brilliant ruby color with violet edges. Strawberries, raspberries and ripe fruit with a hint of pepper and spices and elegant floral notes.

On the palate, flavors of red fruit, spice and hints of vanilla from French oak-aging. Fresh and round, its soft tannins lead to a delicate, lingering finish.
