Matt’s review:

This single vineyard expression of Mendoza Malbec showcases how well structured, complex, and flavorful premium Malbec can be. For under $30, the 2013 SonVida Malbec is an outstanding wine that I’d recommend buying by the case(s). Deep ruby red with an opaque core, the nose is bursting with sweet Damson plum, blackberry, mocha, cedar, graphite, with a hint of sous bois and pipe tobacco. The palate is rich and concentrated with dark berries, blueberry, Damson plum, cacao, and leather on the finish. An exceptional wine that is showing beautifully now and will only gain further complexity over the next decade and beyond. Enjoy with Matambre (Argentinian stuffed flank steak), with optional Chimichurri sauce – a fantastic pairing! Tasted October 2017. 93+ points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
