Trivento, Golden Reserve Malbec 2015, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: A silky malbec with concentrated red-and-black fruit and intoxicating perfume-like aromas that please all the senses.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, red currant, cassis, raspberry, bramble and vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied malbec is smooth in character and delivers fruit flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine abounds with mid-palate complexity and ultimately completes with a medium-plus finish.
There is balance between the fruit and ripe, medium-plus tannin.

Bottle Note: Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec is a legacy of traditions passed down from generation to generation; and expresses the passions of everyone involved in the vineyards’ labours. Hand-selected grapes are then transformed into a concentrated garnet-red wine whose lively red fruit aromas and silky tannins make way for a flood of sensations on the palate.
