Paz de Finca Las Moras Malbec 2013

Pedernal Valley, San Juan, ArgentinaAlways a bit of a smart crowd pleaser, thanks to a note of freshness under a swath of black fruit aromas. Full and rich, but with some restraint, the palate mixes peppery blueberry/blackberry fruit with dense sweet tannins. There’s a bit of grip in the back end and quite a swath of heat, but nothing a steak wouldn’t meet with aplomb. Best to splash decant for 30 minutes or serve with a big piece of meat. Part of the Gruppo Peñaflor, one that includes Trapiche.Tasted: 11 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices:
