Trivento Amado Sur 2014, Mendoza, Argentina

My Rating 84 Points.   

Price $16. 

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, earth, green vegetables, herbs, dark chocolates, earth, leather, smoke and spices.

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

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked strawberries, earth, leather, bell pepper, oak, vanilla, licorice, sage, vegetables, bitter herbs and black pepper.

Medium finish with green tannins and peppercorn.

This Argentinian Malbec Blend is still young, and needs 2 years in the bottle to mature. Now it is unbalanced, but shows complexity potential with spicy nose and palate. It feels like the different flavors are not fully integrated. Time will fix that.

Better after 2 hours of airtime, but drinkable right out of the bottle.

A blend of 79% Malbec 11% Bonarda and 10% Syrah.

14% alcohol by volume.
