La Violetta Le Rayon V Cabernet Malbec 750ml (Denmark, WA)
A wine of some heft, weight, concentration, but a lovely pillowy, soft, supple feel. It flows through the palate with authority yet feels cuddly and warm too. It smells of plums, new leather, liquorice, dried herbs, faintly minty. It’s ripe-fruited but shows frisky acidity underlying and pulls together on rails of very fine, dusty tannins. It’s great drinking, especially if you like fuller flavoured wines.
