Riglos Grand Malbec 2014
Riglos are based in the Valle de Uco, one of the premium regions in Argentina, on 4000 feet elevation. It's a collaboration between the famou Paul Hobbs from California and a local Argentine wine maker. The proximity to the the Andes Mountains and high elevation creates sunny, cool growing seasons perfect for retaining freshness in the wine. Made with native yeasts to express the terroir as much as possible.
Ripe blackberry, black plum and vanilla spice are counterbalanced by floral tones. Juicy palate, but firm and round with lovely fresh acidity giving it an elegant lift.
