Malbec

Bodegas Salentein Reserve Malbec 2015 Review

This is a balanced, well-priced Malbec from a highly-regarded winery in Mendoza Argentina's Uco Valley. The vineyard sites are planted at a very high elevation (roughly 4,000 feet), resulting in wines that have pronounced aromas, flavors, and freshness. The color is deep purple, and aromas include blackberries, apple pie spices, and a hint of pine forest. The texture is very smooth, fresh, and palate-coating, with lively tannins, fresh fruit flavors, and a savory finish. At $19, it's a textbook example of high-elevation, nuanced Malbec.
