Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored wine is not your typical Malbec. It opens with a fragrant black plum, musty book, and old leather bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, juicy, and savory. The flavor profile is black currant with hints of old oak, cinnamon, black pepper, and plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins build up and stick around for quite some time. The panel suggested pairing this wine with Braciole Di Vitello or beef bourguignon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Synonymous with the red wine of Argentina, the 2011 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, black fruit, cola, and spicy herbs. The palate explodes with bright blackberry and dark cherry, framed by lively acidity and subtle tannins. The intense mouthfeel seamlessly rounds out the finish. 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.
