Zorzal Gran Terroir Tupungato Argentina 2016 Malbec
Tasting Notes: This hand harvested, single vineyard, from Gualtallary is 100% Malbec and spends 12 months in French oak barrels. A large nose of blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, and smoky tobacco leads to a big and bold palate of fig newtons, dry leaves, dark chocolate, and powdered sugar. The finish lasts with big, smooth tannins and fruit galore.
James Suckling 93/00: A very blueberry-themed nose that also features violets and lots of lavender. Granite, slate and other crushed stones. Medium-to-full body, lots of fine, elegant tannins, racy acidity and a medium-chewy finish.
Food Pairing: Beef, Lamb, Poultry.
