Yellow and Blue Malbec 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit reticent yet revealing rather fresh red berry fruit with an aromatic herbal component that’s a bit like hay or dried herbs and that recalls a lighter styled south Rhone. Rather light bodied, fresh acid, a little milky feeling, a bit of cocoa and earth edging the relatively sweet red berry biggish red licorice fruit tone with a touch of jolly rancher acidity as well. Has a little spiciness but doesn’t seem woody at all, decent length with a sneaky return of slightly medicinal choco-mint. . All around decent wine 86pts

Yellow and Blue make green... The grapes for this Mendozan Malbec are organically grown and the juice is unoaked and full of fresh, vibrant acidity. The nose is reminiscent of dark berries and the tannins are pleasingly present. The liter-size tetrapack is recyclable and lightweight, giving it a tiny carbon footprint. Take a tetra home tonight!
