2014 Trapiche Malbec

July 29, 2016 - Norman Bentley
#30-16-PIE

Malbec has always been one of my favorite wines, and the ones from Argentina stand out for both their quality and their value. Trapiche is one of the most prominent wineries in Argentina, having vineyards nestled up against the foothills of the Andes, where Malbec seems to thrive better than anywhere else on the globe. The twelve months of oak cask aging lend toasty vanilla tones to this lush and complex wine.

The color is a beautiful deep red which attracts one to a heady nose full of dark fruit and spice. The flavors explode in you mouth with a pronounced presence of black cherry and plum, with well rounded notes of vanilla, spice and mild tannins. This a full bodied wine with complexities which seem to belie its value price mark.

Excellent with a thick rare steak, it would also make a great companion for a variety of other foods, including Beef Bourguignon, or a big platter of Peppers and Italian Sausage in Marinara sauce.

Norm's score is 88.

price : $10- $15

score: 88
