Trivento Golden Reserve Lujan de Cuyo Malbec 2011 Wine Review (NW)
Rich nose of wild berries
Full bodied on the palate
Berries, coffee, and spice layers on the finish
Deeply colored and packed with wild berry flavor, this is a full throttle Malbec from the Lujan de Cuyo region in Argentina. It has a roasted coffee layer on the finish that rounds it out nicely.
The retail price is $18 or so, which puts it a few dollars above the basic Malbecs filling the shelves. Serve with meat dishes and give it plenty of air.
