Loscano Vineyards, MalbecRegular price $17.00
Designed to be true to its varietal, Loscano 2018 Malbec exhibits the traditional soft tannins yet full body this wine is known for. Traditionally vinified but using some of the latest winemaking technologies, the Private Reserve Malbec comes from an elevation of 3,300 feet — Uco Vally (DOC) where it is grown in sandy, loamy soil with deeper gravel layer for excellent drainage. 2011 saw ideally balanced weather conditions, making way for an exceptionally delicious vintage that showcases the best an Argentine Malbec can offer.
A striking, slightly smoky wine with deep burgundy hue, Malbec’s fruity bouquet delights the senses and warms the palate with notes of blackberries, blueberries & lavender, lingers with a gentle tannin pull, & finishes with flavors of toasted hazelnuts.
