Vina Alicia Malbec 2011, Mendoza, Argentina

My Rating 86 Points.   

Price $30.
Deep Ruby, with a brick hue, in color, and a purplish rim.

Nice fruity nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body, soft and elegant, with medium acidity and beautiful long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, bell pepper, Oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, spices peppercorn, leather, dirt, coffee, chocolates and tobacco.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This Unfiltered Malbec from Mendoza, has a great, soft, mouthfeel with nice balance, however too expensive.
Definitely above average, nice complexity, and drinking beautifully  right now, but still missing that wow affect.

Enjoyable by itself or with food. Great wine to pair with BBQ Meats.

Grapes were hand-picked, and the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

14.8 % alcohol by volume.
