TintoNegro, 1955 Vineyard Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 750ml
The resulting 2011 1955 Vineyard Malbec appears black with intense spiced red and black fruit, violet and earthy on the nose. The palate is complex with wild cherry fruit, locked in with sweet cassis, mocha and creamy smoked oak, velvety soft with additional dried plum and a hint of prunes, finishing full and persistent with even more spiced black fruit and warm oak. An excellent wine that should be allowed to breathe 2-3 hours and will continue to get even better. Best served with a perfectly grilled steak, lamb and even strong cheeses.
