This Malbec offers a deep purple color with violet tints, complex plum, fig, strawberry, spices and floral aromas. Rounded and velvety tannins, excellent length with a distinguished character - an incredible value.
Excellent when paired with game, roasted red meats, pasta or pizza.
"Black violet color. Aromas and flavors of stewed berries, damson plum, spiced dark chocolate, and black tea with a lightly tannic, vibrant, dryish full body and a polished, nuanced, long finish with notes of olives and oak with moderate oak flavor. A big, bold and commanding Malbec with huge body and style."

"Blackberries, blueberries, violated, and peppery herb notes all emerge from the 2017 Malbec. It’s medium-bodied, has a charming, rounded, fruit-loaded style, and is another terrific value under this label. Made from 100% Malbec that spent three months in 10% American oak, it’s a high-quality house red to drink over the coming 2-4 years."

"The 2015 Lexicon Malbec, which is 100% Malbec, is slightly better, showing more floral character in the deep blackberry and cassis-scented nose, a saturated ruby/purple color, velvety texture and lush medium-bodied flavors with light, silky tannin."
