A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: The 2021 Malbec Reserva, from Vistalba, Luján de Cuyo, was 60% aged in barrels for 12 months. Purple in color. The nose presents notes of fresh plum and violets, white pepper, strawberry, hints of spice and aromas from the aging process. It's initially indulgent in the mouth, with good fat, volume and a velvety texture. The flavors are bold and full-bodied. This 2021 overdelivers at the price. Drinking window: 2023-2030.
