Trivento, Cabernet-Malbec Reserve 2016, Mendoza, Argentina

Tasting Note: Please the both cabernet sauvignon lover and the malbec lover at your table with this Argentinean blend.

Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of ripe black currant, red currant, black cherry, black plum and violet.

On the palate the dry, full-bodied cabernet-malbec blend delivers flavors suggested on the nose, but with more restraint.

The wine has a plush, smooth mouthfeel and mid-palate flavor concentration.

While enjoyable, the blend is tentative in identity.

The malbec contributes to the wine’s red-fruit character while cabernet delivers black-fruit flavors.

You can taste the cabernet sauvignon and malbec interplay while the wine figures out who it wants to be when it grows up.

A blend to follow.

Which varietal is winning in your glass tonight?

Bottle Note: Trivento takes its name from the three winds: Polar, Zonda and Sudestada. The God of the Winds, EOLO, capriciously summons the winds that make Mendoza such a distinctive winegrowing region. A deep ruby red whose plum-forward mix of red fruit aromas combine with vanilla notes from the 6 months aged in French oak. Trivento Reserve Cabernet/Malbec offers potent and persisting tannins in a well-structured body.
