Our 2020 Malbec is a robust symphony of dark fruit that captures the complexity of Mendoza's iconic varietal. The color shows inky purple with a halo of black tulip. Pronounced notes of black cherry and blackberry integrate with finely grained spice and vanilla oak. Notes of wild berries and round tannins fill out the palate, leading to a long and velvety smooth finish with a touch of dried herbs. Delicious with wood-fired meat. A warm growing season during 2020 accelerated ripening and led to the earliest harvest on record. As a result, the berries harvested were small with expressive, concentrated flavors and ideal acidity.
Maybe it was me, but I find the 2020 Malbec to be really excellent, with ripe Malbec fruit, notes of violets and berries and a spicy twist. The palate is round and juicy, nicely textured, with plush tannins and a long finish. Delicious, and a bargain at that price.
