Lagarde, Prìmeras Vìnas Malbec 2012, Perdriel, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: An aromatic ruby-to-purple colored malbec blend consisting of 100% malbec from two vineyards in separate microclimates.
On the nose there is black plum, red cherry and some baking spice – mostly clove with a hint of cinnamon.
On the palate you feel medium-plus tannin first, then black & red fruit (in that order) making an impact at the 60% point of the taste.
An intriguing blend of two malbec vineyards.
