2017 Quintessence Vineyard Malbec
“It’s like all of those Malbec characteristics turned up to an 11,” says Malbec-enthusiast Will. There is an explosion of pure fruit on the palate, more so than any other release this year, along with aromas of classic white pepper and black olive. “The color is just crazy…like an inky black with a ruby red rim on it.” This is a juicy wine with soft and smooth tannins. It could go with a wide range of foods, and Will suggests something from Argentina. “But,” argues Charlie, “it’s also a wine that you’ll want to open up and just drink.” Enjoy now through 2025…if you can wait.
