The 2019 Mendel Unus is a blend of 65% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot from Mayor Drummond, Perdriel and Paraje Altamira, Mendoza. It was aged for 16 months in new French oak. Dark purple in hue, the complex, compact nose presents aromas of lightly candied plum and blackberry with subtle hints of herb, cedar, furniture polish and a whiff of liqueur. A substantial wine with good concentration and elasticity, the flow is voluminous and juicy, channeled a little by finely grained tannins that also keep the palate taut before the long, compelling finish. Drink 2023-2039. (Joaquin Hidalgo)
Wine Tasting Notes
Incredible dark purple color. The aromas of dark cherries, plums and roasted cocoa come leaping out of the glass. This is a big but very suave wine with layers of ripe cherry and berry fruits, and the cocoa and vanilla flavors simply make this wines finish go on and on and on. There are loads of ripe, soft tannins, so this wine will certainly age beautifully for a decade or longer, but the temptation to drink it right away may be too much to resist. Serve with absolutely any red-wine friendly food and you will have a ball!
