Trivento Malbec Tribu 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Following thorough research on the Mendoza Region’s winegrowing potential, Concha y Toro founded Trivento Bodegas y Viñedos winery in Argentina to produce upper quality wines for the international market. As a result, from 1997 on, Concha y Toro has been able to complement its Chilean product offering with traditional Argentine grape varieties such as Malbec and Bonarda, sold under the Trivento brand in Europe, the Americas and Asia. Eolo's vineyard sits higher than its surroundings in a privileged location. It means that it benefits from cooler nights and a larger thermal amplitude. Several thunderstorms accompanied higher than normal early summer temperatures yet by mid-March when temperatures were more moderate the healthy grapes gradually achieved the soft tannins Malbec is known for. The 'Trivento Eolo' displays a vibrant purplish-hued garnet colour with aromas of camomile, cinnamon.Tea aromas make way for fuller plums and dried figs with a chocolate and pencil lead edge. Rich and creamy, on the palate, 'Eolo' wrapped in silky tannins departs beautifully poised.

A step up from the regular offerings of Trivento, this Golden Reserve Malbec has an inviting blueberry-bilberry nose that evokes fond memories of the liqueurs of Madame Brizzard. The entry is warm, slightly metalic and full of more wild, dark berry flavors that linger. Very New World, but with sufficient tannic structure to allow up to 5 more years of aging - to good effect. Very, very good - if you like this sort of wine.

This is our favorite wine under $30 and pretty much the best Malbec we've ever tasted.

Rich and Creamy on palate. Camomile, cinnamon and tea aromas make way for fuller plums and dried figs with chocolate and pencil lead edge.
