2016 Mendel Unus, Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon, Luyan de Cuyo, Mendoza (6 x Bottle)

Argentina Mendoza

Deep red with violet tints. The nose is dominated by fresh black cherry, plum and blackberry, with notes of cassis, chocolate and caramel. The palate is fleshy and meaty with fine harmonious tannins. Structured, but not stern, this is highly complex, with beautiful lifting acidity that makes it rich yet easily drunk.

Vinous

Bright medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, violet and licorice are accented by a hint of black pepper. Dense, vinous and light on its feet, offering terrific peppery/herbal lift to its penetrating black fruit and violet flavors. This very suave, vibrant blend shows a distinct Cabernet herbacity as well as strong chalky minerality, not to mention the energy of its long, cool growing season. The substantial dusty tannins call for at least a couple years of patience. (a blend of the best lots of the winery’s oldest vineyards in Mayor Drummond, Perdriel and Uco Valley)
