Tilia, Malbec 2013, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: Preceded by a nose of violet, this malbec has flavors of strawberry, plum and raspberry which delight the senses.
This wine leaves an after taste of blended red fruit that is pleasing for those who enjoy a fruit-forward style.
Medium intensity, with a light acidic finish on the back of your tongue, this malbec is slightly ahead of middle of the pack with a decided headstart towards the next level.
Bottle Note: Tilia, the Latin name for Linden, is a traditional tree in Mendoza whose flowers are used to make a relaxing herbal tee, enjoyed after a long day’s work among the vines. The choice of this historic tree to represent our wine reflects a commitment to the traditional way of life in Mendoza, where most farmers bike or walk to work and live with their families near the winery and vineyards. Tilia is sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in the Eastern and Southern regions of Mendoza. Tilia Malbec shows concentrated black cherry and plum fruit flavors and aromas with a touch of spiciness and soft, supple finish.
