Bremerton Special Release Malbec 2014

Malbec from the Langhorne Creek GI, where Bremerton seem to have a good handle on this somewhat neglected variety.

Gamey, dusky violets initially, but a little too much new oak on show for my liking; 

Redeems itself on the palate  - a tour de force of black and blue fruits that initially flood the senses, before sensibly holding back and washing across the palate.  Nice touch of bouquet garni herb that holds up the back palate and gently eases the wine to a conclusion.

Licorice twists provide a final flourish, along with some firm and fine tannin. Good wine. 91
