Almarada Malbec 2017

90 pts James Suckling - Plenty of orange peel and dried cranberry on the nose of the bold palate.

Tasting Notes

Intense fruity aromas of black plum give rise to a palate full of freshness, velvety tannins and flavors of dried cranberry and chocolate with orange peel. Great balance and complexity.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts James Suckling

Maybe this isn’t the most subtle wine in Argentina, but it has a lot going for it. Plenty of orange peel and dried cranberry on the nose of the bold palate. Drink now.
