Bodegas Escorihuela 2014 '1884' Malbec - 88pts

Bodegas Escorihuela 2014 '1884' Reserva Malbec (Mendoza) Argentina

: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $17.99 + taxes
Alcohol: 14%
Date Tasted: July 2nd, 2016

Tasting Notes: Darker and more "serious" than recent vintages with blackberry and black and red currant fruit aromas supported by smoky-oak, fresh herbs and zesty-spice notes on the nose. Though the palate has a touch of residual sugar, the overall profile is quite savoury with smooth, smoky tannins, wild berry acidity and a combination of dark fruit and spicy-oak flavours. Finish is moderate-plus and well-balanced with spice and mocha notes lingering.
 Drink now-2018.
