Trivento Amado Sur Malbec

Trivento Amado Sur

Malbec

2011

(Mendoza, Argentina)

On Bottle/Website:

* 78% Malbec: From Luján de Cuyo. The Soul – rich, enveloping texture and dark, luscious fruit

* 12% Bonarda: From Maipú. The Style – a touch of Old World structure and vibrant color
* 10% Syrah: From Tupungato. The Spirit – lively spice and flamboyant fresh berry flavors. It’s the stroke of madness that binds the soul and style
* Pairs well with breaded provolone, lamb ribs, mozzarella and prosciutto
* Deep red in color with violet and crimson
* Fresh red fruits, combined with notes of clove, smoke, vanilla and toast
* Smooth tannins and pleasurable finish

My Notes:

Appearance: clear, bright, ruby, purple on the edges, high concentration, rim variation, medium viscosity

Nose: clean, medium minus intensity, youthful, leather, spicy (I need to refine my spice palate because I was unable to pinpoint specific spices), rhubarb, dark fruits, dried fruit flavors

Palate: dry, definitive wood flavor, tobacco, dark fruits, spicy, medium minus alcohol, low acidity, medium minus tannins, medium finish, medium complexity

This wine paired well with a mini-burger with aged cheddar and ranch style greens.
