2008 Rutini Trumpeter Malbec

Wonderfully deep dark purple color! Lots of berries and spice aromas fill the glass. Layers and layers of blackberries and cherries are surrounded by earth tones, green pepper, and spice.

This wine has a very smooth mouthfeel that's almost creamy! It could use a touch more acidity to liven up the back end, because the creaminess leaves it almost a little flat. It has a very rich long lasting finish with nice tannins! This is a solid effort for an under $10 malbec, making this a great value. You can't get too much better than this at this price-point. Cheers!
