Almarada Uco Valley Malbec

2020 Almarada Uco Valley Malbec...$13.99
10% of American oak and 90% of French oak (medium plus toast)
Brilliant, complex wine. Intense fruity aromas of black plum give rise to a palate full of freshness, velvety tannins and favors of dried cranberry and chocolate with hint of orange peel. Great balance, complexity and length
Blackberry and cherry with some floral and cedar character. Medium to full body. Medium, round tannins. Shows some tension, though it’s a little heavy in style. Drink or hold.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling
