2017 Malbec Black Tears Valle de Uco, Argentina
This Argentinian wine from Uco Valley, produced by Tapiz does not disappoint.
In fact its name, Black Tears was given because of its beautiful, bold color intensity.
The blue, black and purple hues of concentrated wine ink, stain the glass. Flavors and aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruits, dried plums, figs, fruits compote and a jam packed nose give way to very subtle menthol notes. Its passage through oak provides notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Presence of sweet and ripe tannins. A specimen with an elegant personality, intense in flavor and an impeccable balance of bold and lush.
