Outer quote mark Soft berry aromas hint at prune, while this feels jammy and a bit raisiny. Blueberry, black plum and raisin flavors conclude on a warm and fleshy finish. (MS) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

K&L Notes

Malbec, the flagship grape of Argentina, hardly needs an introduction. You can find good quality Malbec at every price level. Uco Valley, where this wine gets its grapes from, is an important subregion that boasts some of Mendoza’s highest altitude vineyards including La Arboleda vineyard, which is about 3100 feet above sea level. You’ll find slightly higher acidity due to the high altitude and diurnal temperature difference. Bold ripe dark plum flavors in the foreground with oak and earth in the background. Of course, you can’t go wrong with grilled meats to pair this with, but our South America buyer Kirk recommends hot dog mac ‘n’ cheese.
