Rutini Trumpeter Malbec 2014

The Winery says: The Trumpeter Reserve Malbec displays intense red color with deep violet tones. On the nose, fruity aromas of cherries and plums are shown with a delicate mint note. The mouthfeel is subtle, fine and sweet tannins with a long and lasting finish.

The Critics say: “Good ripe black fruits in the nose like black currant and black cherry with a little bit of a spice component. In the mouth you have more nice black fruits, notably blackberry, with a touch of cocoa. This wine is not particularly long but is pleasant enough.” —www.anuvawines.com

The Gazette says: Dark ruby color. Genteel nose with roses and stone fruits, some spice. Luxurious with plums and blackberries, cinnamon and faint nutmeg. Sweet, silky in the mouth, but the tannins give it some structure. Dark fruit flavor lingers, juicy.
