Bodega Elena de Mendoza Malbec 2013, Argentina

image

My Rating 83 Points. 
Price $11.

This 3 year old, Malbec, is ready to drink right out of the bottle, now.
This wasn’t the case last year on this vintage.

Dark Ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, plums, cherries, ripen strawberries, light cloves, earth, licorice, oak, light vanilla, vegetables, dark chocolate, black pepper and spices.

Full-bodied with medium acidity and Long Legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, cherries, oak, currants, licorice, cloves, dark chocolate, coffee and green pepper peel.

Medium finish with soft, round tannins and nice acidity on the end.

This Malbec from Mendoza is drinking very well now. Smooth and enjoyable by itself. A Nice everyday wine.

I paired it with Parmesan cheese.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
