Hits the sweet spot of flavour and value. The $18 to $24 range of Malbecs is full of great Argentinean wines.
This young Malbec from Mendoza is already very approachable. Easy drinking and good by itself. Fruit forward and tasty.
It rates better than any other year from this vineyard 92 Pointer. Great right out of the bottle, and gets earthier after an hour in the decanter. Tangy and a soft tannin finish.
I’m going to go back and grab another bottle and put down so we can revisit in about 2-3 years.
It’s straightforward and not complex at all but it is big, rich and doesn’t need food although BBQ, hamburgers, sausages and roast beef would all work with it.
