Viña Chocalán Grand Reserva Malbec 2011

Valle del Maipo, Region del Valle Central, ChileThis ripe malbec is big from the first, expressive sniff; smoked branch, bramble, resin and dense cassis notes. The full palate spikes with wild blackberry acidity, and rests comfortably on a frame of thorn-edged tannins. This is a generously stuffed wine, one to pair to roasted beef or venison.
