Trivento 2012 Golden Reserve Malbec (Luján de Cuyo) Mendoza - Argentina
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Date Tasted: January 7th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A robust, masculine Malbec from the Luján de Cuyo region of Mendoza that exudes confidence and restraint through aromas of blackberry, spicy plum, menthol and sweet vanilla on the concentrated nose and via oak-kissed, mixed-berry fruit and black plum flavours on the well-structured, lip-smacking palate. Smooth tannins, impressive balance and length make this wine seem like a bargain at its under $25 price-point. Pair it with a rack of lamb with mint sauce.
Ready to be enjoyed now, though, will hold for another 3-4 years comfortably. Drink now-2018.
