Three Thieves 2013 The Show Malbec - 87pts

Three Thieves 2013 The Show Malbec (Luján de Cuyo) Mendoza - Argentina

: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $18.99
Alcohol: 14.1%

Production: 17,000 cases

Date Tasted: October 4th, 2014

Tasting Notes: A consistent performer with a boisterous nose of classic Argentina Malbec, berry'n'spice aromas and a fruity, mouth-watering palate that balances glycerol fullness from (some) residual sugar with tangy, wild berry acidity and smoky, mesquite tannins, allowing the wine to finish moderately long and spicy.

BBQ pork or beef dishes are a great bet for this wine (think Argentina cuisine). Enjoy it in its youth over the next 2-3 years. Drink now-2017.

On a side note: At the time of this review, the 2012 vintage is still selling at BCLDB stores. See our notes on that vintage here. Look for the (slightly) enhanced 2013 vintage to show up on the shelves when the 2012's sell through.
