2013 Malbec

Mendoza, Argentina

Malbec

Synonymous with the red wine of Argentina, the 2013 Recuerdo Malbec is cultivated in the Uco Valley, which is situated on the eastern side of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza. A deep violet color, the wine opens with an arresting nose of ripe blackberries and succulent plum. The palate is fresh and smooth, showcasing a purity of fruit with refined flavors of raspberry, currant and savory spice, and a finish that is supple and persistent in length. This wine pairs well with a variety of heavier fare and will offer a daily respite for lovers of Cabernet Sauvignon and other full-bodied red wines.

"From one of the best harvests in the Uco Valley... The nose is fruit-driven with nice shiny berries, something fresh and leafy (think tea leaves). The palate is medium-bodied with great acidity"
