2015 Trivento Malbec Reserve Mendoza

SKU #1272667 95 points Decanter

 Gorgeous nose exhibiting an array of aromas such as peppery mulberry, sour and black cherry, violet and a subtle touch of wild strawberry jam. The palate is full, complex, with a fantastic energy and bursting with ripe dark plums; tannins are impressively silky and freshness is amazing. An exceptional nectar from the Agrelo terroir.

K&L Notes

Michael Schachner of Wine Enthusiast writes: "As recently as the 1990s, many Argentine wineries produced crude, inconsistent wines that were heavy and lacked balance. Today, following in the footsteps of quality-­minded pioneers like Bodega Catena Zapata, Bodega Norton and Trapiche, more wineries of all sizes are making consistently better, cleaner, more satisfying selections that appeal to worldwide markets. Malbec has led this charge, but the country’s wineries have also stepped up the quality of their varietal Cabernet Sauvignons and blends...Argentina is among the best in the world at delivering quality across all price points."

This lovely little Malbec is exactly what you were looking for in an everyday red! Although the aromas display pretty red fruit and ripe berry, on the palate the wine is rich, supple and punctuated by sweet black fruit notes. This Malbec is less peppery, and more silky in texture than many I've tasted, making it a very easy bottle to pop open and enjoy anytime, and with quite a variety of foods.

Deep, dynamic and approachable. This wine has great notes of fresh spices, such as clove and cardamom, intermixed with fresh raspberry and black cherry fruit and balanced acidity. The spice continues throughout the sip and stays during the long finish. Definitely a great wine to add to your weekday buys!

Another dee-lish Malbec, the Trivento shows lovely red plum, juicy bing cherry and subtly sweet touches from brief barrel aging. At under $10 this will most definitely do the trick. As always with wines we like which are both inexpensive and highly rated, this one is not likely to last..

Additional Information:



- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.


- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
