Raza Reserva Malbec 2018

La Rioja, ArgentinaThe vintage is declared on the back label next to the alcohol level, almost as an afterthought, which fits with what's in the bottle. This is about the style first and foremost: an easy drinking malbec with bold fruit and oak. Forward, sweet blueberry, and plum is bolstered by vanilla and mocha notes from some oak aging. Medium-bodied, and just 13%, the palate is both sweet and sour, with disjointed acidity that gives this a mouth-puckeringly tart finish.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 15.50 select private retailers AB 12.50 select private retailers Producer: La RiojanaDistributors: Empson Wines Canada
