Viña Doña Paula Los Cardos Malbec 2016 Mendoza, Argentina 

My Rating 81 Points.

Price $10.

 

Dark ruby in color with a wide purplish rim.

Sweet nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, plums, red candy, spices, wood, licorice, steel, peppercorn and cloves.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, strawberries, currants, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, oak, vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This is a drinkable Malbec from Mendoza. Simple, spicy and not fully balanced. Not very smooth, a little harsh actually.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
