Algodon Malbec / Bonarda Black Label
$333.35 / case(12)
”biography this is a marriage made in heaven! It is made from a yield blend of argentina’s most iconic and widely planted varietals. Though these grapes mature at different times the malbec three weeks before the bonarda we harvest both together (the malbec ten days later than typical the bonarda ten days early). Planted in alternating rows the malbec brings luscious sweetness while the bonarda provides firm acidity. This 1946 vineyard blend was designed with this in mind even though it took us many years before we realized what our predecessors were aiming to achieve. Tasting notes deep red ruby color. A huge aromatic complexity composed mostly by berries raspberry and floral notes followed by licorice cloves and leather. The tannins run on the palate and it is well balanced with acidity and astringency. Long and elegant finish. It can easily age for a decade or more. Pairing this wine is very complex and well structured with a wide range of flavor that can be easily paired with venison with prunes braised beef or lamb with rosemary cream sirloin with shallots garnished with pink pepper balsamic vinegar fresh grapes and sherry. Grilled red meat is a must. It can be also enjoyed as a meditation wine.” – algodon
