Tasting Notes for October 4, 2012


2010 Argento Malbec

Wow, really luscious wine! Color is a garnet, and on the nose a delicous aroma of dark chocolate … oak is so subtle one isn’t sure it is even there. Lush and full palate with super ripe plum, more chocolate, and incredible balance. Though the fruit is concentrated and rich, there is a lightness to the wine that makes it refreshing. Now I know why it pairs so well with steak!
