2019 Altos Las Hormigas Reserve Malbec Uco Valley Argentina
Deep color, with a brilliant purple rim. An intense nose, with a fine, floral perfume alongside the ripe red fruit. There are hints of undergrowth, graphite and smoked walnut too. The palate is rich and mouth filling, with smooth tannins that support the wine well. On the finish, alongside the floral and fruit flavors, mineral complexity lingers.

Fresh and racy, but also deep, with soft-spoken complexity, delineating baked licorice, black cherries and blueberries. Some chalky raspberries, too. Just medium-to full-bodied with a beautiful delivery of tannins. Polished and compact. Elegant and nervy. So drinkable now, but you can hold it for two to three years.
