Well-spiced, with a mix of sandalwood and cocoa powder accents to the structured dark currant, blackberry and cherry tart flavors. Grippy tannins show on the fleshy finish.
Terroir Selection Malbec is made from a blend of five vineyards in Lujan de Cujo and Valle de Uco, each bringing different characteristics to the wine. Lujan de Cujo contributes elements of ripe, mouth filling fruit that is very long on the palate, while Valle de Uco supplies strength and young, primary fruit aromas and roundness in the mouth. Terroir Selection Malbec is aged in French oak barrels (new, one- and two-year old) for 12 months and in bottle for 6 months.
This wine is a great match with grilled ribeye or NY strip steak, roast fowl, and pork with herbs or Latin spices.
