Aromas of dark berry are potent but narrow and limited, and there’s a slight note of minty grass as well. The wine is juicy, bouncy and fresh in the mouth, with dark cherry and blackberry flavors. Simple, fruity and tasty, with good balance.
Not sure why this 1999 would still be on the market as a current release, but at the very least it shows that Malbec ages fairly well. The nose is still largely fresh, while the red fruit flavors fall into the raspberry, plum and cassis category. Not terribly lush but solid. Imported by The Wandering Epicurean.
