La Puerta 2011 Malbec
Here's a malbec from Argentina with ripe and juicy fruit on the nose, with exotic plum, chocolate and subtle herb and flower notes. In the mouth, it is just earthy enough to bring some complexity, with a bitter chocolate finish complementing super ripe fruit flavours. It is perhaps not a very serious wine, but pleasant nonetheless.
