Bodegas San Polo Auka Malbec 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Opaque black-purple. This opens very slowly with very restrained aromatics. Subtly smoky with slow to emerge notes of crushed berries, juniper, slight smoked meets and a vein of floral tones. Very smooth in the mouth and packed with fine tannins this has a lovely mouthfeel; with melded mocha and berry notes joined by an array of spice and mineral tones. The finish is a tad short but the feel is easy and suave, pretty much quintessential “value” Malbec. 89pts
