90+ Cellars Lot 23 Old Vine Malbec 2017
Deep ruby-purple in color, this wine boasts exquisite aromas of blackberries, blueberries, plum and spice. It is well balanced with ample structure and mild tannins. Dark cherry and hints of wood smoke emerge on the finish to leave an elegant and lasting impression.
Layer Cake Malbec 2016Big, brooding, black fruit, then rich earth, truffles and dark cocoa are at the front. The Sea of Stones vineyard is at its core, always evident with the thread of minerality that the deep alluvial cobblestones lend. This wine is elegant in the mouth with fresh-picked blackberries, simmering chocolate sauce on the stove, and somewhere someone's cooking bacon…so many layers, so little time. Drinking a bottle of this wine will certainly lead to, well, opening another.
Bodega Monteviejo Festivo Malbec 2016Boisterous black plum and blackberry aromas properly announce an extra grabby palate with rock-hard tannins. This tastes like roasted plum, cassis and blackened spices. Tannic and dry as a bone on the finish, with a savory note.
Bodegas Caro Aruma 2016Deep ruby red color. Nose revealing aromas of red fruits evoking ripe plum, cherry and raspberry, as well as hints of light spices. The fresh and juicy palate is characterized by an exceptional balance between acidity, soft tannins and alcohol. Long and delicate finish.
