Monchinori & Barraud Perdriel Malbec 2014, Argentina 


My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $20.
Dark purple in color with a purple rim.

Soft nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, figs, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices, peppercorn, vegetables, vanilla and wood.

Dry on the palate with cherries, blackberries, strawberries, earth, leather, black currants, plums, peppercorn, spices and herbs.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Long finish with firm tannins and tart raspberries.

This is a nice Argentinian Malbec. Interesting and balanced, with a spicy /tart kick. The nose is inviting and complex, while the palate is pleasant. Drinking nicely now, but needs an hour to open up.

Enjoyable by itself or with food. A Wonderful wine to pair with BBQ meats.

14.6% alcohol by volume.
