6 Bottles of Chakana, Nuna, Malbec 2019
A ripe, fleshy style with full-bodied layers of crushed plum and framed by fruitcake and a lingering expresso note.
“Blended from lots of different plots in Chakana’s Agrelo holdings, this is a great value Malbec that has backed off on both the oak and alcohol in recent years. Perfumed and well balanced, it’s an elegant, refined red with a streak of greenness adding freshness to the finish.” Tim Atkin
