Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec 2017

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaThere’s more fruit ripeness here than Trivento's Reserve Malbec, veering into the blue fruit spectrum. There’s also a lot more oak, with abundant vanillin and smoke. Interestingly, there’s not the weight you'd expect from the fruit ripeness, with a surprisingly thin mid-palate leading to a tart, short finish. All in all, it's fairly disjointed, and the blocky, grainy tannins will need to be finessed at the dinner table.Tasted: 27 February 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 24.99 BCLS AB 21.99 select private retailers MB 22.99 Manitoba Liquor Mart ON 20.00 LCBO NS 25.00 NSLC PEI 25.99 PEILCC NB 25.00 NBLiquor NFL 26.65 NLLC Producer: Trivento Bodegas y Vinedos S.ADistributors: Escalade Wines & Spirits
