Pure berry and cassis aromas are concentrated and show no holes. This Uco Valley Malbec feels pure, direct and linear, albeit with slightly scratchy tannins that should dissipate in due time. Blackberry and dry spice flavors finish full and grabby, with muscularity. Drink through 2028.

Oyster shell, iodine, forest floor, citrus and Chinese spices. So mineral yet spicy on the palate with driven acidity, tight tannins and a fresh yet layered finish. This is so mineral and savory as it closes out. Drink now or hold.
