OUR FRIDAY LINE-UP:
Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec- Reg. $15.99 SALE $11.99
Second up and facing off against the Punto Final is the Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec. This wine has lived on our Malbec shelf for some time and has always been an easy buy. Dark Ruby in color, it pours beautifully with accompanying aromas of black fruit and spice. The wine has well defined fruit as it enters the mouth and has great volume with a very particular texture resulting from the chalky soils. Its tannins are sharp, making it very direct, with nerve and a very long finish. Will it beat the Punto Final this week? Come try it and find out!
Last up we have the Catena Malbec. This “microclimate blend” of four unique vineyards offers intense aromas, a soft texture, and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of sweet spice, and leather. The wine finishes with bright acidity, well-integrated and silky tannins, and a flinty minerality that lingers on the palate.
