The Escorihuela Gascón is 100% Malbec, aged eight months in a mix of American and French oak, both old and new. Oak is well represented in this wine, both in the nose and on the palate. When I decant a wine so as to aerate it, I usually nose the decanter to make sure the wine is clean, but in this case the aromas of the Gascón were so evocative that I made some initial notes, which jibed with my formal aroma notes from the glass some four hours later.

Warm ripe fruit was my first general impression, then I identified plum, blueberry, violet, chocolate, vanilla and baking spice. Other than the chocolate, it all fits in with a tasty blueberry tart, and I have to note, for what it's worth, that both the blueberry and the violet notes are in accord with the wine's striking purple color. The wine is dry, with medium acidity, medium tannins, but a good black fruit plum and berry intensity. The key palate note is a chocolate cocoa roasted-coffee mocha element, tagged with more of the vanilla and baking spice. The finish is fairly long, with a bit of the toasted mocha at the end, and the kind of caramelized sweetness you get from nicely toasted bread.
