Trumpeter Malbec-Syrah 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Some blackberries, blueberries, and cocoa on the nose
A nice acidity and balance on the palate
Shorter finish, moderate tannins, and a bit tangy
More and more bargain wines are hitting the shelves from Argentina. This wine is a 50/50 blend of Malbec and Syrah, which are both widely planted in the South America. I've seen the Trumpeter label a number of times and finally had the opportunity to try this blend, which is worth the $9 price tag. Raise a glass!
