Recuerdo malbec

Malbec 2012

Recuerdo Wines

A deep violet color, the wine opens with an arresting nose of ripe blackberries and succulent plum. The palate is fresh and smooth, showcasing a purity of fruit with refined flavors of raspberry, currant and savory spice, and a finish that is supple and persistent in length. This wine pairs well with a variety of heavier fare and will offer a daily respite for lovers of Cabernet Sauvignon and other full-bodied red wines.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Year's Best Argentine Malbecs. This wine may trap you in the intensity of its violet and cherry flavors, the fruit nearly rabid in its freshness and neon in its redness. The texture is as raspy as lime pith, holding the fruit with a firm grip. Spicy and electric!" (Wine & Spirits)
  • "90 points. The 2012 Recuerdo Malbec, from young vines in Vista Flores in the Uco Valley, has a complex bouquet of dried flowers, raspberries, blueberries and sweet vanilla. This pure Malbec from stony and sandy soils is aged in mostly third-use oak barrels with some wine kept in vats in order to preserve the fruit and freshness of the wine. The palate is medium-bodied, with great acidity and freshness, pure, focused flavors and great length. Superb for the price. Bravo! Drink 2014-2018." (Wine Advocate)
