2019 Malbec "Alhambra" (Abril, Finca)
Finca Abril, Malbec "Alhambra", Mendoza, Argentina 2019100% Malbec PLUSH, VELVETY, SUPERCHARGED JUICY GOODNESS The Uco Valley is a prized district of Argentina's vast Mendoza region, where century old vineyards are being revitalized to make some of the country's most exciting wines. The cooler climate and 4,000 feet elevations make wines like this one, that bring together ruby-fruited richness with violety freshness. Gustavo and Maria Laura's 23 hectare organic operation here, now in its 25th year in operation, is mosquito sized compared to the million bottle behemoth's that dominate Argentina's industry, but the wines more than hold their own against their mass-produced neighbors. Serving Suggestion: A charcuterie passed among friends, loarded loaded with aged sheep's milk cheeses (like Manchego), Prosciutto and smoky Chorizo. Slow roasted beef brisket.
