Valle Las Acequias 2006 Malbec - 87pts

Valle Las Acequias 2006 Malbec (Medrano) Mendoza - Argentina

Availability: BCLDB Signature Stores
Cost: $20
Alcohol: 13.8%
Date Tasted: September 16th, 2011

Tasting Notes: The nose offers juicy black berry and cranberry aromas with notes of licorice, spice and minerals. The palate is smooth and easy-drinking with some residual sugar adding body and richness. Smoky, intense and very fruity (mostly dark fruits). Not very complex, but a focused wine that knows itself well. Enjoy this wine now and over the couple of years as the acidity and tannins are such that the wine should continue to keep. Drink 2011-2013.
