Valle Las Acequias Malbec Oak 2017

Mendoza, ArgentinaThe vines are closing in on 90 years at the Don Angelino estate in Medrano, Mendoza, giving this wine a natural gravitas that, over the years, has attracted many fans, especially for the price. The attack is impressively lavish, with plenty of black fruit and dense, slippery tannins. Round and persistent, it finishes in a storm of pipe tobacco, licorice, and toasted oak. Still youthful, this is the classic barbecue red you can serve with a steak, hamburger, or pulled pork sandwich. Good value.Tasted: 20 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
