Wine for the Weekend: Dona Paula Estate Malbec 2011

Dona Paula Estate Malbec 2011


Ixel Balamke’s wine notes

Color – Intense purplish red color.

Aroma – Sweet, spicy and intense aromas, with notes of red fruits and herbs (such as Herbes de Provence).

Initial Taste – Lots of raspberry goodness

Finish – Velvety tannins that linger on the tongue with lots of raspberries, figs, and herbs at the end.

Brilliant wine that runs $19.  What a steal!!  Showing that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to find a great wine to drink.
