Our Price: $11.99
If you've come to expect top quality Malbec from Argentina and great value from us, Lot 23 totally over-delivers. The grapes for this wine are hand harvested from 100 year-old vines situated on an expansive vineyard located in the Agrelo district of Lujan de Cuyo, one of the top spots in the world for growing Malbec. After fermentation, the wine is aged for six months in French oak barrels and then kept in bottle for another six months before release.
Deep ruby-purple color. The wine boasts exquisite aromas of black berries, ripe plum and robust spices. It is well balanced with ample structure and mild tannins. In the finish, more dark fruit flavors and hints of wood smoke emerge to leave an elegant and lasting impression.
