Concha Y Toro, Serie Riberas Gran Reserva Ribera del Tinguiririca Malbec 2016, Marchigue, Chile
Tasting Note: A malbec with flavor concentration and bursting with black fruit.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, black currant, blackberry, black cherry and violet.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied malbec is smooth in texture with aromas on the nose continuing to the palate as flavors.
The wine displays flavor concentration and completes with a medium finish.
The malbec is medium-plus in ripe, somewhat-velvety tannin.
Bottle Note: The majestic high Andes forming the backbone of South America have a series of ridges that jut our east-west. In Chile, vital crystalline water crashes down the steep mountain valleys carving out short river courses to the Pacific and refreshing the bountiful riverbank crops and vineyards on its way. The malbec vineyards planted on the south bank of the Tinguiririca River, produce a wine with tremendous elegance and aromas of violets, blueberries and caramel.
