From the historic foothills of the Andes Mountains in Medonza, emerges Cuarto Dominino's Tolentino Winemaker's Selection Malbec. The wine is a dark violet color and displays dense, black fruit aromas, with a hint of mocha. On the palate, there are chocolate and black fruit flavors with soft, silky tannins. It has a natural balance, nice concentration and a distinctively smooth, lengthy finish.
The Tolentino Malbec pairs beautifully with red meats such as roast beef, steak and prime rib. It also goes well with roast turkey and chicken. It also compliments Mexican, Cajun, Indian and Italian foods, especially those with rich tomato sauces.
"The 2011 Tolentino Malbec Winemaker's Selection, which sees six to eight months in French oak, has a pinched bouquet of raspberry, mulberry and a touch of banana skin (from a little reduction). The palate is medium-bodied, with sappy, ripe red berry fruit on the entry. The acidity is well-judged and builds nicely with copious raspberry jam and boysenberry notes, towards the satisfying, structured finish that is pure and silky smooth in the mouth."
