Mendel Unus 2019

2 units available online.
Product description

The aromas of dark cherries, plums and roasted cocoa come leaping out of the glass. This is a big but suave wine with layers of ripe cherry, berry fruits, white pepper, mint, chocolate, caramel, smoke and toast. There are loads of ripe, soft tannins, so this wine will undoubtedly age beautifully for a decade or longer, but the temptation to drink it right away may be too much to resist.

Try with smoked meats and charcuterie.

93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The red blend 2019 Unus has the usual 65% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, but the nose is not as focused as I expected. Maybe it's too young and needs a little time to absorb the effect of being aged in French barriques for 16 months. The oak feels nicely integrated, and the wine is serious, balanced and somewhat austere and combines power and elegance as usual. It's herbal and peppery, spicy with good ripeness and freshness.

Intense ripe blackberry, chocolate and walnut aromas. Hints of dried fruit. Some figs, too. Full-bodied with polished tannins and a soft, creamy texture. Lovely already.
