Montes Classic Series Malbec 2016

SKU 715126400022


Lively purplish-ruby red in color. Aromas of fresh red and black fruits such as strawberries and blackcurrants predominate on the nose. Floral notes accompany the profile very well, and sweet notes of nutmeg and vanilla appear on the backdrop. The perfume of cherry liqueur meld with aromas recalling confectionery, contributed by the French oak. The palate is well balanced with rich acidity that turns juicy and makes this easy to drink. Medium body and nearly imperceptible tannins give way to a sweet sensation on the long and persistent finish.

Wine EnthusiastGritty, rubbery berry aromas come with an oaky covering. This Malbec feels good and lively, but also resiny. Flavors of forced oak rest on top of generic berry underpinnings, while oaky flavors of clove and mint take over on the finish.
