Painted Rock Malbec 2016

Skaha Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a blockbuster malbec that presents awash in black fruit and spice. The dry, desert Skaha environment may not be Andean but the proximity of the lake and cool nights have stoked its florals and acidty to keep it on point. Another level above the C.C. Jentsch and the Hillside, this tells an impressive Okanagan tale. Big, boisterous and ready to go, this must be tamed with a grilled piece of lamb or another decade in the cellar.Tasted: 21 January 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 44.99 winery direct, club member exclusive Producer: Painted Rock Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
