Flechas de los Andes Gran Malbec 2017

Product description

This ripe and bold Malbec has some serious muscle to it, not to mention a good deal going on with the wine. Dark berries, some tar and a hint of the oak frame, this is a smooth and silky wine. Lovely floral lift with intense, smooth, chocolatey black fruit. Especially flavorful with rack of lamb or full-flavored chicken and veal.

93 Points - James Suckling

Rich but fresh with ripe plums, blackberries and a touch of fine, cigar-box oak. Lightly chewy tannin on the palate, surrounded by bright, juicy fruit, but not over the top. Everything in check.

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Gran Malbec seems to be back on form, with floral and varietal aromas, ripe but still fresh for a warmer year and nicely balanced. This comes from their best plots, and they keep it for four years (18 months in barrel and two and a half years in bottle) before it's released. The wine is now balanced, polished and ready for prime-time drinking. It has a medium to full-bodied palate and fine tannins with a clean and dry finish.

The 2017 Flechas de Los Andes Gran Malbec delivers attractive pleasures from start to finish. This wine shows aromas and flavors of savory spices, tar, and black fruits. Enjoy it with grilled beef kebabs.
