This week’s WOW is a highly-rated, juicy Malbec from Argentina’s Uco Valley. TintoNegro is a project from wine experts, Argentine Alejandro Sejanovich and American Jeff Mausbach. Their goal was to create an easy drinking Malbec priced for everyday consumption and we think they did!
2013 TintoNegro, Malbec
Uco Valley – Mendoza, Argentina
92 Points, Wine & Spirits: “The acidity is the heart of this wine, the force that propels it. While it smells ripe and spicy, the wine feels firm, vibrant and refreshing. Those qualities suggest it will age well; take another look in two or three years. Best Buy.”
Sourced from Mendoza’s high-altitude Uco Valley, this wine features rich floral aromas, dark fruit flavors and a bright, fresh finish. You can serve TintoNegro Malbec with hardy meat dishes but, at this price, don’t be afraid to pair it up with pizza and burgers!
