Trivento Eolo 100yr Ann. Malbec 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

93 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:'According to a metal label attached to the bottle, the 2012 vintage of Eolo marks the 100th anniversary of the vineyard planted on the banks of the Mendoza River. Dark-colored and dense, it looks ripe and concentrated only swirling the glass. The nose has some oak and lactic aromas, graphite and toasted bread intermixed with ripe black fruit, plums and dark cherries. There are also more delicate, floral aromas underneath. Full-bodied, ripe and powerful, this is not a shy wine. It is well-oaked, it has big bones and is nicely crafted with a slight international flair to the style defined by ripe fruit and generous, creamy oak. This big style wine has nice balance and very fine tannins. It's a powerful Malbec that feels very young and has the stuffing to develop nicely in bottle." 12/15.
