2021 Sylvestra Malbec - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2021 Malbec Sylvestra from the Uco Valley is purple in color with a diaphanous but expressive fruity nose featuring fresh plum, hints of blackberry and violet over a bed of herbs. Intense in the mouth, the polished tannins are lifted up by the juicy freshness which also injects energy and tension before the fruity finish. - Joaquín Hidalgo"

 "Jammy raspberry and red plum aromas are friendly but a touch soft and short on concentration. A medium-full palate is pulpy and jammy, with plum, blackberry and herbal flavors that seem tomato-influenced. Nothing on the finish moves the dial; drink now. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"
