It's all about that bassa with this deep Argentine Malbec! Focused on the lower register of the fruit spectrum, flavors of dark berries and violet are boomingly aromatic and persistent on the palate. Metaphors aside, the Octava Bassa bottling really is a lusciously rich and layered Malbec that is a must-have for enthusiasts of Argentine wines!
