Finca Sophenia 2008 Tupungato Malbec reserve

Dark dark dark opaque purple, tends to be violet at the edges.

Black plum smell, blueberry. retrained oak in the background.

Dry fruit flavors, prune, blueberry, red cherry, cocoa, oak that never overwhelms, good acid, soft tannins at the end. Rewards a bit of air.

Very good dry full-bodied bottle for $15.99, uncomplicated, matches well with simple full-flavored food.
