Thorn-Clarke St Kitts Vineyard Malbec 2008

The Plum and black fruit aromatic depths are married to oak, still prominent at ten years. 

Fruit is subsiding on the palate, spice and tannins are more prominent. Past its best, it's all a bit angular and hollow, the stuffing knocked out if it. 

That said, its still carrying a good length and presence. Would have been good in its prime. Unrated.  

Tasted on: Saturday 24th February, a Root day
