Tolentino Winemakers Selection Mendoza Malbec 2018
James Suckling: "Impressive poise and complexity with subtly spicy oak, nuanced into ripe red berries and cherries. Super rich and deeply juicy dark-plum flavors build into a smooth, fleshy and sleek finish. Delivers and balances well. Drink or hold." Mar 2019
Winery: "The Tolentino Winemaker's Selection Malbec has a dark violet color with dense black-fruit aromatics and some mocha character in the nose. It also has very soft and silky tannins, a natural balance, nice concentration and a distinctive smooth lengthy finish.
Food Pairings: red meats such as roast beef, steak and prime rib. It also goes well with turkey and roast chicken. Mexican, Cajun, Italian and Indian foods, especially those with rich tomato sauces.
For over a century, our past generations have produced grapes and wines of quality and authenticity from the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Selected from small lots in our high altitude vineyards, the grapes for this wine showcase dense, concentrated black fruit aromas and flavors."
