Tintonegro Malbec 2012
Very affordable wine from Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina. Let’s see how it goes.
Colour: Medium+ purple core
Nose: Clean nose, liquorice, very fruit forward, blackberries, blueberries, black cherries, and a touch of oak.
Palate: Dry, medium-body, medium+ acidity, medium+ soft tannins, ripe dark fruits, plums, well integrated oak.
Finish: Medium finish, plums, oak.
Very good malbec, not overly ripe, decent complexity, paired with canjun chicken after the review, solid buy for $18CAD.
NOTE: I score tighter than the average, and price isn’t part of the consideration.
