Antigal Uno Malbec 2017
Ranked the #11 Red Wine in our June 24, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
An unusually gentle style of winemaking, made possible by our winery's gravity-flow system, protected the fresh varietal character of the meticulously selected grapes used for UNO Malbec. This seductively silky violet-red wine pairs well with robust vegetable dishes and all red meats.
Attractive aromas of wild berry fruits, lavender and cardamom give this Malbec a sense of exotic quality. A full hard-driving palate is intense at first and then it coasts. Flavors of black olive, dark plum and savory spices are earthy, salty, mildly complex and impressive through the finish line.
The primary, expressive and open 2017 Uno Malbec is quite aromatic and shows a fruit-driven profile. It's straightforward and has a juicy palate with fruit flavors and some astringency. 600,000 bottles produced.
Roasted raspberry and cherry flavors feature sanguine accents in this reductive version. Turns tart on the finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made, 30,000 cases imported.
