2011 Recuerdo Wines Malbec

While I was at the Wine Bloggers Conference, I was lucky enough to be able to be introduced to the North America based marketing team for Recuerdo Wines during the Speed Tasting for the white wines.

After the conference, I was asked if I wanted to review the Malbec. Without batting an eye, I was more than willing to!

The 2011 Recuerdo Malbec has an inky, dark purple color to it in the glass. When you hold it up to the light, though, there’s a beautiful garnet color that shines through.

On the nose, there’s a lovely ripe, dark fruit component that leads in to a bit of a cola and spicy herbal note.

On the palate, there’s a tart blackberry and dark cherry note that make this a *very* drinkable wine. There’s also good acidity and subtle tannins, which makes it a versatile food wine, if you ask me.

And at $22 a bottle, it might be a splurge for some, but a splurge I definitely recommend!!
