Malbec
Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby /Inky with a thin purple rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, cloves, metals, tobacco, spice box, coffee, earth, light vegetables, red candy, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with high acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, red currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, tar, earth, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium finish with round tannins and bitter herbs.

This is a young Malbec from the Uco Valley in Mendoza. A bit bitter, unbalanced, sour and hot on the back of the throat. Shows notes of complexity.

Drinkable but needs some bottle time. Better after it opens up (2 hours). Would pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

100% Malbec grapes are grown at above 3,300 feet elevation, and aged in oak barrels for 12 months. Unfiltered.

14% alcohol by volume.

#Malbec from Argentina is always a pleasure to drink. But#Salentein Reserve from Uco Valley is more than that. Complex,fruity with long aftertaste pairs tremendously with pizza,not just a steak.

A nice example of a modern malbec. Fruity, rich nose, followed by a much drier wine. Full and a bit tannic, fairly acidic, no oak. Bold wine, great for steak and cheese. Could be a bit more complex.
