Trapiche Medalla Malbec 2016

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis is a full throttle, heady malbec aged in all new French barriques for 18 months. The oak is certainly present, with no shortage of chocolate and toast, but it doesn't overwhelm the fruit. The soft, plump black fruits work nicely with the wood, and a violet lift gives it added aromatic intensity. Suave and polished, this is nicely balanaced and will hit that big, bold red craving as we head into barbecue season.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.00 select private retailers MB 22.00 Manitoba Liquor Mart NB 22.85 NBLiquor NFL 22.85 NLLC Producer: TrapicheDistributors: Dandurand
