The Terroir Series Malbec is made with 80% Malbec from the Uco Valley, 12% Bonarda from Agrelo and 8% Petit Verdot from Gualtallary, a zone within the Uco Valley. Each grape brings it’s own uniqueness to the wine.
The 2012 Malbec was deep red with a tinge of purple. The nose was heady with dark berries and floral aromas. A hint of mushrooms and spice were present. The palate offered blackberry, plum, licorice and oak. The finish was long with bursts of pepper. Soft tannins and a velvety mouth-feel gave this wine a lot of character.
