Susana Balbo Susana Balbo Malbec 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2012 Urban Uco Tempranillo Malbec is an equal blend of each variety aged for three months in used oak barrels. It has a lifted, floral bouquet with dark cherries, mulberry and a touch of black currant pastilles. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly dusty tannins. It is very harmonious and fresh with vibrant blackberry, bilberry and crushed stone. It is a little abrupt on the finish, but hopefully it will gain more persistency with bottle age. Drink now-2016.

This ripe red shows a candied to its edge the dark cherry and plum sauce notes, leading to an aftertaste of licorice and mocha. Drink now.

Bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, violet, mocha and nutty oak. Suaver and sweeter than the Signature cabernet, with juicy, fruit-driven black plum, blackberry and violet flavors framed by harmonious acidity. Boasts excellent precision and inner-mouth tension for a wine in this price range. Finishes with a firm tannic spine, sneaky length and a hint of minty lift. This is 14.5% alcohol but I never would have guessed.
