A different Malbec from an unlikely location

Who would have known that they make Malbec in the wind swept plains of Patagonia? Well, they do, and vin_43athey do a pretty good job at it, albeit, quite different from what we are used to. Familia Schroeder brings their Saurus Malbec to British Columbia. A purple, inky color, precedes a surprisingly chocolate, plum, tobacco, French vanilla loaded nose. Medium-plus body with red fruit, good acidity and soft tannins. The finish is rich and unusually chocolatey for a Malbec and spice.
