Wesley’s Wine of the Week (San Lucas Malbec 2011)

The San Lucas Malbec from Mendoza is a great example of Argentina’s signature grape. We served at room temperature after dinner.

The appearance was burgundy and leggy. The aroma was flowers and plums. The attack was full and firm, with the mouthfilling tannins you expect from a Malbec. There were subtle hints of blackberry and a long finish.

In all, very good; better than the Ascencion 2010 I reviewed in April. I give it a 4/5 and would definitely drink again.
