Septima Malbec 2018

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaIt's easy to associate Raventós Codorníu with its eponymous Cava brand, but Mendoza-based Septima is the seventh winery established by the group. This malbec is made in a fruit-driven style, with the majority aged in stainless steel. The black fruits are slightly muddled, with added complexity coming from a touch of smoky oak (15% of the blend is aged in American and French oak). It's soft and ready to drink, though there's more value to be found elsewhere in the Argentina aisle.Tasted: 23 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.91 select private retailers AB 13.85 select private retailers ON 17.00 consignment - Small Winemakers Collection NFL 17.99 NLLC Producer: Bodega SeptimaDistributors: Andrew Peller Import Agency
