The house you bought in a middle-class neighborhood is discovered to have an underground passage to a lost gold mine. Nose is pure grape, but not jammy in the traditional sense; typical for the Argentinian breed. Mouthfeel is astonishing: soft, supple, dry, and surprisingly dense. Malbecs tend towards being one-note wonders, but this one has the complexity of an old cab. Dark fruit dominates, of course, with black cherry and blackberry notes present. There’s some smoke in there, too, which would mean this will pair with barbecue as well as it would a $300 fine restaurant steak. Better yet, it drinks so smooth you can enjoy this on its own, and not wait for dinner to be served. Highly recommended.
