Flechas de los Andes Gran Malbec 2011
|Brand||Flechas de los Andes|
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Gran Malbec is matured one third in new barriques, one third in used ones, and the rest in stainless steel for one year. However, the nose is very spicy with an aromatic core of plums and cherries along with plenty of vanilla, cinnamon and smoke. The palate shows some dusty tannins and moderate acidity. 200,000 bottles produced.
Wine SpectatorLots of dried savory herbal notes accent the cedar and dried cherry flavors, which are supported by medium-grained tannins. The minerally finish has dried beef accents. Drink now. 8,400 cases made.
