OUR FRIDAY LINE-UP:
Doña Paula Estate Malbec- Reg. $15.79 SALE $13.99
First up we have the Doña Paula Estate Malbec facing off against Decero. The Doña
Paula Malbec has been a store favorite for some time now. Pouring an intense violet
color, this wine shows it means business from the moment it leaves the bottle. The
nose is full of black fruits, violets and a touch of spice that finishes with mineral
and graphite notes. On the palate the wine has great balance and freshness in the
mouth, with good concentration and medium structure. Very much a crowd pleaser and
a wonderful way to start off the bracket!
Decero Malbec- Reg. $18.99 SALE $15.99
Second up and facing off against the Doña Paula Estate Malbec is the Decero. Another
store favorite for some time this wine is truly wonderful. Full red-ruby on the
pour, it leads into pure aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and violet.
On the palate it is juicy, concentrated and refined, showing a restrained sweetness
and good medicinal reserve to the flavors of dark berries, mocha and more chocolate.
It finishes smooth and persistent, with a serious dusting of fine-grained tannins
and lingering dark berry and licorice notes.
Domaine Bousquet Reserve Malbec – Reg. $16.99 SALE $13.99
Facing off against last years winner (Durigutti Reserva) we have the Bousquet Reserve
Malbec. It is a wine of dark violet color with reddish hues. In the nose it presents
intense aromas of blackberry with notes of black currant and plum. On the palate
it is a balanced and elegant wine, with pure fruit expression like raspberry, fig,
and chocolate. It has a well-defined velvety style, excellent structure and a long
finish. A great wine to go against the previous Malbec Champion, this is everything
a Malbec should be while not being the death of your wallet. Even better, it’s also
Durigutti Malbec Reserva- Reg. $49.99 SALE $21.99
Last up we have the Durigutti Malbec Reserva defending its title against the Domaine
Bousquet. Ripe and massive, this wine fills up your palate from start to finish.
Raspberry and boysenberry notes burst in the initial taste and are mirrored in
the nose. The middle is earthy and dusty with lingering fruit notes. The finish
is layered with mocha and licorice along side the characteristic spicy Malbec finish.
Another one of those “don’t miss trying this” bottles, this is yet again a wonderful
wine to close out our Friday tasting and to kick off the Malbec Madness bracket.
See you tonight!
