Review: 2017 Trapiche Medalla Malbec Mendoza

Trapiche’s Argentina-born wines are invariably built around value, and this Mendoza malbec is no exception. Pushy up front with extracted, densely black fruit, this wine can be initially off-putting, so give it some time to evolve in the glass. Over time, a brambly character, laced with baking spices, emerges, but there’s so much tannin here that it never lands as overwhelming distinct. A slightly balsamic note lingers on the finish.

    Far too much alcohol. It ruins the wine in my opinion.
