Yellow and Blue Malbec 2012

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

1 liter tetra pack = good for the environment. Light, fresh and lively Malbec. Low tannins, low oak, clean and fruity. Definitely a fun, quaffable wine. Its not bad, but lighter than I'm used to. Notes of cherry, leading to some sour cherries and licorice on the finish.

    Great wine for the price and the packaging delivers a liter.

    Pours a deep, opaque reddish purple. Aromas of blackberry brambles and current. Rich, earthy flavors coat the tongue, and loads of berry fruit persist throughout. Hints of rosemary and thyme add depth, and the sultry tannins are smooth, but well-defined. Finish lasts and lasts.

    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!

    This environmentally friendly Mendozan Malbec is delightfully free of oak and full of fresh and vibrant acidity. The nose is reminiscent of dark berries and the tannins are pleasingly present. Take a tetra home tonight and discover what all the fuss is about!
