DetailsThis deep, densely purple-colored Malbec boasts aromas and flavours of ripe blackberry and blackcurrant, with hints of violets and plums and a touches of leather and tobacco and sometimes a hint of cinnamon. With lots of juicy fruit on the palate, its tannins are gentle and sweet and lead to a spicy finish of tannin and subtle oak.
It is the ideal wine to go with grilled or stewed meats, or pair it with robust dishes like smoked, cured beef or charcruterie, burgers, venison or aged cheddar.

1 month agoVery nice looking Malbec.Very good looking Malbec kit. When I first opened the kit the aromas were wonderful. Have not bottled it yet but so far the color and clarity is proving to be superb. Hope it's drinkability in 6 months or so is as good as I anticipate.May 5, 2019Purchased

Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 30 answersHow many gallons does it make?BEST ANSWER: This kit makes 5 gallons of finished product.I want to buy this as a Christmas present. Will it need to be refrigerated? If I purchase it now (December 5th) will it still be good to use after Christmas?BEST ANSWER: No, you will not need to refrigerate it.
It’s contents comes in sealed bags.
Storing it in the coolest place in your home or apartment like a basement or closet is the preferred method of storage until the contents are used.Saw the plastic bag of oak. Are the grape skins in the paper "tea bag"?BEST ANSWER: I made the wine a few months ago and do not recall. I followed the instructions step by step. It is a wonderful full-bodied and dry red wine. I will be making it again as we have consumed about 50% of the batch. Just have to bottle my Chambouricin and will start another batch of this Malbec!!
