Ferngrove King Malbec 2011

Vibrant in the glass, leaping out, encouraging you in.

Violets, lavender, blackberry compote. An alluring aromatic array. Underneath that lies a savoury edge, a little earth and dried grass.

Has Malbec's graphite edge - as I see it - black fruit bordering and backed up with some clove derived spice. Good length of flavour, if lacking a little detail on the finish. 92

Tasted on: Saturday 21st June, a Leaf day
