The Esk Valley Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2014 is a full-bodied red wine that is also full of flavor. A deep ruby color in the glass, the nose shows lush aromas of dark fruits and oak seasoning. On tasting, the palate is beautifully textured. The tannins are nicely developed, and fruit flavors abound. This wine is enjoyable now and will also age beautifully in the cellar for many years.
Serve this wine with a variety of meals, such as rich red meats and wild game.
