Reserva Especial Valle de Bernal Malbec 2014

Wow! Such an expressive nose.
Young cedar shavings mingled with mint and eucalyptus leaves.

On the palette, persimmon, cara cara, blueberry skin, bing cherry. The utmost subtle hint of powdered cocoa. Such light tannins dancing and kissing while throwing care into the wind
This is truly amazing. This is what Mexico wine is all about. Diversity and terroir.

2800 bottles made. Thank you
@Carlos Diaz for sending this up my way via our friend.

This place LQR MRKT. In Norwalk CT. Only place I've seen it. $17. I went back and bought another bottle. Sensational. I suppose because it's technically the same terroir as Napa, being that Livermore is just south. It's a dam steal!

There is also a light vegetal hint on the nose and in the palette if given some air. So complex and a breath of fresh air from the one trick ponies that seem to be the new new works cabs.
