Argentina, Malbec, Red blend, Amalaya, Salta, Calchaqui Valley, 2015

argentina-malbec-red-blend-amalaya-salta-2015Red blend of 85% malbec, 10% tannant, and 5% syrah

For best results I suggest you decant and wait 30 minutes to an hour before enjoying as she had some reduced aromas that need to float off

N/ Black fruits, black soil, plum skins, marine wafts, crushed leaves, forest floor, and taffy.

T/ Purple and black fruits, pronounced mineral and rock, plum skins.

She has a moderate tannic bite that I assume will tame with a year or two in bottle. She closes dry with rock notes and a cranberry pucker.

A solid wine that just needs a little more bottle aging.

Price = $16
