External Reviews for Bodega El Portillo Malbec
A winery to watch is Salentein, the maker of this densely colored wine that features inky blackberry aromas along with hints of spice and tobacco. Lush but firm, with moderate tannins that make themselves felt. A streak of toasty oak creates coffee and pepper on the back palate.
Medium-weight, with a slightly jammy core of red cherry, plum and rhubarb notes backed by spice and sweet toast on the rounded finish. Drink now.
The Mendoza appellation's ecological conditions have allowed this wine to develop all its characteristics optimally, demonstrating what an Argentine Malbec can yield. The end product is a velvety red endowed with sweet ripe plums, rich cocoa and toasty vanilla nuances.
