Michel Torino ‘Ciclos’ Malbec/Merlot 2011

Blended Red from Argentina
Review Date : 12-Feb-2014
50% Malbec and 50% Merlot from the Cafayate Valley, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in American and French oak. Very dark, deep, saturated black-red colour with youthful purple hues. The bouquet is fresh and stylishly elegant with sweetly aromatic, ripe black berry and plum fruits along with layers of spices, florals and some jammy confectionary nuances adding interest. Medium-full bodied, plush and juicy black berry and boysenberry fruits show with ripeness and opulence, unfolding complexing Asian spice elements and oak shine. The fruit richness is balanced by fine-grained tannins and good acid profile resulting in harmony and a completeness to the mouthfeel. The extraction builds and carries the palate to a well-structured, grainy finish with lingering, sweet plummy fruit. This is a plush and stylish Malbec and Merlot blend with a complete and structured mouthfeel. Serve with roasted and grilled red meats and casseroles over the next 6-8+ years. 18.5/20 Feb 2014 RRP $29.99
