Notes:

The 2009 Tilia Malbec-Syrah shows a bright purple color with violet highlights. The nose is full of rich black fruit aromas with light earth notes and a touch of roasted coffee. The mouthfeel is full and sweet, with juicy black cherry fruit flavors, a touch of chocolate and sweet spice from light oak aging. This finish is long and lingering, with ripe, velvety tannins.
