2009 Clos de los Siete Mendoza Argentina Malbec

2009 Clos de los Siete Malbec, Mendoza Argentina

Ripe, rich and tannic, this Clos de los Siete Malbec from the Uco Valley of Mendoza is quite a crowd pleaser. Shorter cycle grapes like Malbec do well in this area, which is why so many tout this region as a superior for producing great wine. There are plenty of black fruits, cherry and cassis to go around on a full-bodied frame. You will appreciate the superb balance, complex mid-palette and long minerally finish from this no fining, no filtration red blend. Hearty dishes like braised short ribs or lightly smoked Santa Maria style beef tri-tip would really showcase this wine! 50,000 case production.

Rating: excellent (92) | $18 | 14.6% ABV
