Valentín Bianchi Malbec Mendoza IV Generación Gran 2019

$55

A rich, concentrated and muscular wine, imbued with espresso-inflected ripe cherry and plum flavors, with a spiced vanilla bean glaze. The thick tannins offer a lot to chew on, but the finish carries on, adding savory and mineral elements to the mix. Drink now through 2032. 10,440 cases made, 100 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Malbec

Malbec originated in Southwest France, where it's also known as Côt; it is still the main grape in the area's top appellation, Cahors. It was once a significant blending partner in Bordeaux's reds, but has largely fallen out of favor there. Farther north in France, it has a presence in the Loire Valley. However, Malbec today is most associated with Argentina, where it has become the signature red grape. It's also grown in other New World regions, including Chile and Australia.
