Bodega Elena de Mendoza, Malbec 2013, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: Feel a malbec grape ripen in real-time on your tongue when you sip this wine.
The taste begins on the front of your tongue and fades towards the back. This malbec is typical of those from the region and is slightly better than middle of the pack.
Bottle Note: Bodega Elena de Mendoza is named after our family matriarch Elena Napoli, whose parents emigrated from Italy to the head of Argentina’s wine country in the nineteenth century. Our bold beautiful wines take full advantage of the altitude, eternally sunny, skies and mountain water unique to our home at the food of the Andes. This malbec is full of dark, intense flavors and pairs perfectly with grilled steak.
