Ruta 22 Malbec 2013, Mendoza Argentina 

My Rating 84 Points.   

Price $10. 
Dark ruby in color with a purplish/brick rim.

Fruity on the nose with barnyard, plums, blackberries, red currants, flowers, cherries, vanilla, earth, chocolates, tobacco, green pepper, oak, dirt, leather, cloves and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body, juicy and spicy, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries strawberries red currants oak smoke plums blueberries, licorice, currants, earth, vanilla, vegetables, chocolates, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with very soft tannins and bitter herbs.

A nice everyday, simple, Malbec from Mendoza, Argentina.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

Needs 15 minutes of air time, and very aprochable after that.
Nice and balanced and drinking nicely now. Not as harsh as a year ago.

14% alcohol by volume.
