Salentein Reserve Malbec 2017
Wine & Spirits: "This may be a fraction of the price of Salentein’s Primum Malbec (also recommended here), but it’s just as good, in a completely different style. There’s no spicy oak or tobacco-scented tannins boosting the fruit here; instead, it’s just pure, fresh, floral malbec, purple and bright. Herbal notes add a cool spice, giving it a vibrant Andean feel." Oct 2019
Winery: "Medium ruby with aromas of ripe plums, cherries and blackberries are complemented by a hint of tobacco. A balanced and complex wine with flavors of redcurrants, black cherries and cinnamon with a long-lasting finish marked by notes of leather, tobacco and vanilla.
Well-matched with barbecued meats, robust pasta entrees, baked ham, pork chops and sharp cheeses."
