Trapiche Medalla Malbec 2016

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThis polished malbec comes from vineyards in Uco Valley, and aged 18 months in new French barrels. Sultry violets perfume wild dark cassis, blackberry, black plum along a smooth, supple palate, buoyed by a wave of acidity and a bump of RS. Tannins are plush and long, drawing the fruit through the spiced, pressed finish. Easy to drink now, with some maturity. Nice to see the sweetness dropping off over time on this label.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
