Very purple and saturated, with mushroom, shoe polish, black licorice and smoky, hard berry aromas and flavors. There's big time weight to this dark, roasted Malbec; that and a soft, smooth, coconutty finish. Loaded with flavor but a bit clumsy. Broquel Malbec is rich and full bodied and bursting with sweet, jammy ripe berry fruit. Long on the palate with well integrated layers of macerated berry, spice, and vanilla-oak. The tannins are firm yet soft on the finish.
Intense purple red color with ruby hues. Aromas ofblack fruit jam and liqueur, with an elegant touch ofsmoke, vanilla and chocolate. Sweet attack and full-bodied tannins. Long and pleasant finish. Deep red in color, this wine exhibits aromas of ripe black plums and blackberries revealing sweet spicy, smoke and mocha notes. Concentrated, lengthy and juicy, this wine reveals Bonarda at its finest.
