Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows loads of spices, herbs, and packed, dense dark fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine is juicy, then has ripe fruit with a bit of warmth on the finish.

Food Match: venison, roasts, red meat, grilled meats, game, beef, BBQ.

My Notes:

About Trapiche:

Founded in 1883, Trapiche is one of Argentina's best-known wine brands. Located at the foothills of the Andes in Mendoza, they own more than 3000 acres of vineyards ranging from 600 meters to over 1200 meters. Chief winemaker, Daniel Pi's goal and vission is to represent the richness and diversity of Argentina's terroir. Trapiche is dedicated to creating the best Malbec wines in the world as exemplified by the winery's most successful project, The Single Vineyard Malbec Series. As a tribute to the growers' passion and dedication, the winery selects three of its best growers and bottles their wines exclusively in limited production. The result is rich, incredibly massive, terroir-driven wines, prossessing bold, powerful fruit that express passion, history and the grower's personal touch.
