Plaisance Ranch – Malbec 2014 – Applegate Valley, Southern Oregon

The nose is fruity and offers complexity. It reveals fine notes of violet, plum, cassis and fine touches of terroir / dried earth associated with subtle / discreet hints of zan, an imperceptible touch of tobacco (in the background) and subtle touches dried strawberry (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a fine mineral frame, a very fine juiciness, a fine acidity and depthness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, juicy / fleshy black cherry and fine touches of zan associated with subtle touches of cigar, wood as well as an imperceptible touch of fresh /juicy raspberry and a subtle touch of dried earth. Tannins are fine and firm. Good length.
