MALBEC, A LISA, BODEGA NOEMIA, PATAGONIA ARGENTINA, 2018

Regular price $59.95

93 Points Robert Parker

This is mostly Malbec with some 9% Merlot and perhaps 1% Petit Verdot, and the full berries fermented in stainless steel.

Only 15% to 20% of the volume matured in used French oak barrels for some nine months, while the rest was kept in stainless steel. It felt very fruit-forward at first, but it turned more serious with some air.

It seemed to put on weight in the glass, showing more depth and layers, with clean aromas and a round and juicy palate with more clout than you'd think. It has more complexity than the varietals and comes through as tasty, long and dry. Drink today or cellar for 10 years
