Mendel, Unus 2013, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: This wine is among the standout malbec-based red blends that will be part of Mendoza’s next evolution beyond single-varietal-bottled malbec.
This purple-colored blend composed of malbec (65%), cabernet sauvignon (25%), and petit verdot (10%) is filled with well-integrated red and black fruit.
On the palate acidity and tannin balance the wine’s fruit components.
Mendel’s Unus red blend is refined like a classics professor.
This wine was aged for 16 months in new French oak barrels.
