2017 Altos Las Hormigas Reserve Malbec Uco Valley Argentina
Spice, white and pink pepper, violets, graphite and pencil shavings with red fruit, wild berries, and underbrush characterize this Malbec Reserve 2017. Complex, long, and multilayered, it is a wine difficult to define as it keeps changing and evolving in the glass. It comes from high altitude vineyards in the Uco Valley, and limestone derivate soils that show fine grain textured tannins that linger in the mouth, while the last sensation of the wine remains for a long time in the palate.
Dense, black and sour cherries, as well as fresh damsons with a nice, spicy note. Very refreshing acidity encompasses crunchy sour cherries and juicy plums, all framed in a tight structure. Firm, silky tannins. An uncompromising malbec with character. Drink or hold.
