2010 Juana De Sol Malbec Reserva Single Vineyard

Vibrant bright violet in color, this single estate malbec showed us great beauty in the glass. We smelled chocolate and espresso with a little bit of mushroomy moss! We tasted those same coffee flavors along with juicy ripe blackberries. The tannins are chewy and lead to a long finish. We noticed a decent amount of heat upon opening, but luckily that went away after hours of breathing.

This is a big bold wine with interesting flavor. It isn't very complex in flavor, and the balance isn't all that level. However, for the price tag it is likely to please most. We do feel there are better malbecs out of Argentina at a more affordable price point.

Body: Full
Approx. Cost: $12
Food Pairing: BBQ Pork Ribs (smoked if you can)
