Bodegas Salentein Malbec Primus 2006

Member Review by mjayup:

Outrageus malbec from Tunuyan (Uco valley), mendoza. Plenty of ripe red cherries and jammy black plum. Beautifull chocolate and tabacco. Soft vanilla. A great malbec, velevety and seductive. a 95 opoints malbec and a great value for the price.

The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps. Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system. The four wines converge in a circular central chamber.which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples. Read less

This purplish black wine meets the eye with outstanding intensity. It is richly aromatic with ripe plums and blackberries, coupled with a touch of vanilla and tobacco, typical of aging in French oak barrels. Its mouth-feel offers an ample start. Sweet tannins and the flavors of ripe red fruits follow, in this wine of sound structure, well-balanced acidity and lingering finish.
