2017 Antigal Uno Malbec

#34-2021

The Bordeaux grape Malbec, never seemed to make much of a name for itself in France, but it is a star in Argentina, and one of the better red wine bargains in the marketplace.  The 2017 vintage from Antigal Uno is certainly a best buy in the fifteen dollar range.

It opens with an attractive floral bouquet of violets and lavender.  The flavors are rich and complex with a mix of blackberry and blueberry being most prominent.  The finish is strong with a suggestion of its ten months in the barrel leading to a lingering dose of its heavy laden dark fruit.  The alcohol content is 13.9%, and Norm’s score is 89.  

A bottle of Uno Malbec begs to be paired with grilled meat or rich sauced pastas.

Score: 89

Price: $15 – $18
