Raza Reserva Malbec 2018

La Rioja, ArgentinaThe Raza line of wines was named in honour of the famed Raza Polo Argentino horses, a native breed renown for their polo skills. 60% of this La Rioja malbec was aged in wood (80% French, 20% American). At once sweet and smoky, with candied blueberries, blackberry jam, roasted coffee wrestling with camp smoked stones and fire grilled meats. Tannins are pasty and ample, to a shorter finish. Requires pairing with equally rustic dishes, sooner than later.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 15.50 select private retailers AB 12.50 select private retailers Producer: La RiojanaDistributors: Empson Wines Canada
