2010 Mendoza Malbec
Aromas of black cherry and plum carry through to the palate.
Lot 258 Malbec has a deep violet color. Aromas of black cherry and plum carry through to the palate. Well-balanced with firm tannins and a long, smoky finish. Some Malbecs can fall flat, however this wine stays lively yet deep with great acidity and it's firm yet fine-grained tannins. This wine is linear, deftly extracted with a juicy texture that invites quaffing. It has good complexity to boot, but is more rightly noted for its drinkability – it’s just a tasty wine that is imminently pleasurable.
Style: Full, Bold
Flavors: Cherry, Plum, Tannins
