Dark and saturated in color, this tasty organic Malbec opens with reduced aromas of blackberry and a touch of rubber that clears up with airing. A meaty and full palate is a slightly gripping and warm, while likable blackberry and black plum flavors finish with power. MICHAEL SCHACHNER
Deep Violet Color. In the nose, pure and intense berries with floral notes. On the palate is a refreshing interplay of vibrant fruit, leavened with a touch of spice, and violets.
Virgen Organic Malbec is not only made from organic fruit but has no sulfites added, thereby qualifying for fully organic USDA certification. 100% Malbec, it is vinified from 100% estate-grown fruit grown at a cool 4,000 feet in the foothills of the Andes. This purest expression of the local terroir, a mix sandy/gravel soils credited for Domaine Bousquet’s signature “Naturally Elegant Wines,” benefits from brilliant sunlight and 50⸰F degree temperature swings between day and night, leading to super-flavorful, fresh-tasting grapes.
