Ferngrove Black Label Malbec 2016

Long considered one of the pioneers of the variety, as a varietal at least. Impressive pedigree too. Opens dark, dusky - as you might expect - but instead it actually offers something rather approachable and good-natured, that's not a slight.  

Plummy, with dusky and charry scent. Nothing profound, sweet accents on the dark fruit, powdery tannin. Goes now! 89 

Tasted on: Saturday 27th January, a Root day
