Gascon Reserve Malbec

Blackberries lead on the palate, followed by chocolate and espresso. This will need a well-marbled New York Strip to allow all the fruit to come through. Recommended. 89 points.

Troon G*S*M

Flat-out juicy, with the sensation of biting into cherries and plums and letting the juice run down your chin. Drink with braised short ribs. Highly Recommended. 92 points.
