With a deep, inky color and dark fruit flavors with hints of vanilla, nutmeg and almond essence, this Arizona Malbec captures the natural beauty of the state it represents. It is a clear, medium purple wine with intense flavors of fresh herbs, blueberries, raspberries and lavender. The flavor begins with a pop of raspberry, and then skews darker for a chickory and cocoa finish.
