Gene Gen Del Alma Malbec Blend Mendoza 2016 Product #32877 (In Stock)
Gene Gen Del Alma Malbec Blend Mendoza 2016 Gene Gen Del Alma Malbec Blend Mendoza 2016

Mendoza Malbec is good - but it's TONS better when blended with complementary grapes.  Here 20% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc plus 10% Merlot lift Malbec to very high heights indeed.  It's loaded with sweet red currant and raspberry fruit with subtle accents of crushed herb, tobacco and spice. Mendoza's Gualtallary sub-region is famed for it's zesty freshness, here matched by depth of fruit and firm, textured, tannins.

"Cropped from a cool and wet vintage, the 2015 Gene is a blend of 50% Malbec with 20% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc plus 10% Merlot from Gualtallary that aims to show the gentler side of the appellation, fresh with a soft texture. The Malbec fermented in cement vats and the other grapes in amphorae and then matured in well-seasoned, neutral barriques for some ten months. This has a more commercial, accessible profile, though for the wider audience but keeping the electricity and minerality from Gualtallary. There is less oak than in previous vintages; the barrels are older and they are fine-tuning the process."Wine Advocate 91 points
