Arturo Bertona Monte Cinco Malbec 2005 Argentina

The Bertona family migrated from Italy's Piedmont region in the late 1800's and now produce award winning Malbecs.

Impressive deep purple colors, a bit warmer around the edges and an opaque texture in the glass, with amazingly rich and focused vanilla aromas following, then encircled by a smoky ring.

Bold flavors reflecting dark chocolate with violets and mild spices, a good balance, then finishing long, clean and strong.
