From the Cellar
El Esteca 2006 Don David Malbec (Argentina)05 Aug 2021
- Category: Uncorked Tonight
(January 2, 2021) ... This is crazy that I have a bottle of this "value priced" Malbec in the cellar - sometimes I really gotta give my head a shake - but I took it upstairs and pulled the cork. Aromas hit aggressively, it smelled like walking into a high end coffee shop, but there is also lingering notes of blackberry hanging around; the tannins are fine and silky with a little mocha backing (fits with the coffee shop aromas) plus there's good acidity keeping things from going out of whack. Surprisingly, still a decent bottle of wine.
