2011 Doña Paula Malbec Selección de Bodega
Deep ruby red and completely coats the glass. A bit tight on the nose with cocoa powder, red plums and cherries. Heavy tannins (7/10) and medium plus bodied. A bit of tobacco and smokiness on the palate, with some white pepper, black cherries, a little leather and earthy rounded mouthfeel. Dry and long finish with a bit of heat coming through. Give it some time to breathe.
Made of 100% Malbec from three of Doña Paula's old vineyards that are all between an elevation of 1,050 and 1,350 meters above sea level. Aged for 16 months in 100% first and second use French oak.
