Tapiz Alta Collection Malbec 2015

Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom Vino del Sol's San Pablo estate vineyard at 1300m in Uco Valley, this was aged one year in oak barrels (1st and 2nd use). Tapiz translates to tapestry, and references the integration between intense fruit, extreme altitude, and oak. It's great to see a powerful wine like this with some age, although at only 13.9%, it's already showing its gentle touch and winemaking restraint. Cassis, wild blackberries, black plums, anise, is woven with perfumed violets, and ample cracked pepper on the layered palate. Near prime now, this will easily hold over the next number of years in cellar.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 36.00 select private retailers AB 26.00 select private retailers Producer: TapizDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
