Jean Bousquet Malbec Fortifed Dulce
Cracka Value Rating
Dulce means 'sweet' in Spanish, and there is certainly a fair bit of that in this fortified malbec. Weighing in at around 15% alcohol, it is a very succulent style that shows lots of ripe plums, mocha, toffee and soft spice on the nose, along with a hint of orange rind. The palate is rich and mouth-coatingly sweet, with plummy and toffee flavours, a touch of savoury smokiness, some fine tannins, and a smooth, silky, caressing finish. if you like LBV ports, this may well be up your street - and it's awesome with dark chocolate!
