2013 Famiglia Meschini Malbec Gran Reserva - Eugenio says: "A perfect year for Malbecs in Argentina, this is a beautiful wine!" A powerful wine, with ageing potential - a great one to throw in the cellar for a few years! This wine sees 12 months of ageing in American oak, imparting structure and aromas of tobacco, smoke, and leather, as well as a hint of cracked black pepper. This wine is round, with delicious red fruit flavor, and long, smooth tannins.
