2011 Sottano Malbec Classico Mendoza

 

 

 

 

 

Medium red-ruby.  Primary aromas and flavors of crushed blackberry, plum, licorice, mocha and pepper.  Sweet, generous and fine-grained; in an elegant style but with plenty of varietal intensity.  Perked up by insidious peppery acidity.  Finishes long and scented, with suave tannins, a suggestion of wildness and excellent lift.  Superb value!
