Mission Briefing

Codename:

Mendoza Delight

Argentine Malbec has surged in popularity with red wine drinkers looking for rich, dark, full-blast flavors - but not all Malbec wines are created equal. The 2013 Adelante Malbec comes from a single vineyard in the prestigious La Consulta district of Mendoza (which is basically the best place on earth to grow Malbec). The 68 year-old vines are farmed with an attention to detail usually seen only at Argentina’s top few wineries. Adelante’s quality is comparable to the best single vineyard Malbecs produced in Argentina today.

Tasting Profile

Look:

An inky blueish purple that almost seems florescent in the way it glows in the glass. Vivid color.

Smell:

Floral, berry, plum, mocha, and toasted oak.

Taste:

Wow! Blueberry compote, berry cobbler, baker’s chocolate, mocha, and spice box seasonings combine for a seriously yummy sip (or three!)

Finish:

Don’t let the everyday price trick you, this wine will age incredibly well for up to 8 years. This is serious stuff for both neophyte and connoisseur. Polished and smooth, with real deal structure under the hood.

Pairing:

It’s hard to go wrong with a grillable piece of meat. A porterhouse with a side of garlic mashed potatoes would be perfect.
