Antucura Malbec 2013 Hi-Res Label
Country: Argentina
Winery: Antucura
Varietal: Malbec
UPC Code: 752183180993
Tasting Notes:

Intense and brilliant color, with violet reflections. The nose is quite typical of Malbec with its red fruit and floral aromatics. The palate entry suggests a full, soft and lush texture with sweet, fine tannins and notes of cherries, black berries and a hint of mocha. Good length and balance help add some nice depth to the wine.

(14.8% alcohol): Bright, deep red with ruby tones. Deep aromas of blackberry and bitter chocolate lifted by a violet topnote. Juicy and penetrating, offering an attractive restrained sweetness and excellent clarity to its dark berry and floral flavors. This classy bargain finishes with integrated tannins and hints of mint and chocolate. — Stephen Tanzer
