2012 Galante Vineyards Ace High Malbec
I think I first started writing about Galante Vinyeards wines in 2012 and I remember really falling for these at the time. The 2012 Ace High Malbec is another fine example of what Jack and this team do to bring a smile to my face. Smoke, leather and violet are the dominant aromas and the cherry adds a touch of fruit on the nose but only faintly. The color of his wine is absolutely gorgeous and after some generous swirling, it shows it's sexy legs. Full of blackberry and plum flavors, there is distinct and welcoming dill and dried spices marriage that helps make this a beautiful drinking experience. The tannins are petite and polished and the finish is long and juicy. Only 531 cases produced!
