Calcu Reserva Especial Malbec 2014

Calcu Reserva Especial Malbec 2014 90 pts Wine Enthusiast 'Best Buy' & Top 100 Values for 2018 (#39)

Tasting Notes

Oct 2018 - This may not have the floral overtures of many of its Argentine brethren but this offers up deep berry tones accentuated with nicely integrated herbal notes on the nose. Medium fuller to fuller bodied, this is juicy and bursting with vibrant, spicy dark fruit flavors that take on light herbal notes carried over from the nose. Fresh, dark and deep with lively acidity, this is gently tannic, calling out for a grilled piece of meat that has a touch of fat to counter. This gains flesh and suppleness as it opens up. Showing well now this still has the structure to drink impressively over the next couple of years quite easily. This represents excellent value

Food Accompaniments

Lamb chops, grilled hamburgers

90 pts - 2018 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Values - #39
Flush, ripe berry and herbal notes come together well in this Malbec. It's fresh and bustling on the palate, with energy and primed acidity. Dark, spicy plum and berry flavors are lightly herbal and come with tones of chocolate and oak.



Winemaker Notes

Juicy and well balanced, this food-friendly Malbec has excellent natural acidity and soft, sweet tannins. Barrel aging gives it complexity and elegance.
