DONA PAULA MENDOZA  “LOS CARDOSMALBEC15 – “On the nose: Many pungent notes jump out of the glass, but predominantly black fruit character with crushed black cherries, bramble, warm blueberry pie, spices, licorice, pepper and hints of coffee grounds, mocha and dark chocolate over soft minerals.  On the palate: This wine makes an entrance with a massive concentration of black peppered fruit, cherry crush, sloe fruit and loads of licorice-laden berries. The acidity is striking. It creates a great melange with the fruit and the tannins through the midpalate, thereby giving the wine a powerful backbone and a good sense of balance.  It carries through to the finish that lingers for a good 20-plus seconds with hints of toast, coffee and anise.”………29.99
