Guillermo de Mendoza, Malbec 2014, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: Those who say malbec doesn’t age haven’t tried this icon-worthy malbec.
Being drowned in red fruit, with complexity and depth never felt so good.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of raspberry and nectarine puree, red-cherry compote, blossom, and strawberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied malbec is pronounced in flavor intensity which abounds with red fruit tempered with florality while at the same time being soft, and feather-like on your palate.
This wine exudes balance including balance with the fruit, medium-plus acidity, and ripe, well-integrated, medium tannin.
This wine has the things in it pinot noir lovers typically love, but from an unexpected terroir that speaks volumes in your glass; my kind of malbec evening.
Bottle Note: Exhaustive agronomic control at every step towards ensuring the finest grapes of maximum quality, harvested by hand at the peak of maturity. A high intensity ruby red wine with attractive violet blendings. The bouquet is a blend of typical fruits of the variety, as berries, cherries and mature figs. The palate finds mature fruit and cherries. It is a round wine with pleasant sweet tannins. Serve at 17°C/62F.
