Urban Uco Malbec-Tempranillo, 2014



Grape Varieties: Tempranillo and Malbec

The 2014 Urban Uco Tempranillo Malbec is a 50/50 blend of the two grapes fermented in stainless steel and matured in oak barrels for three months. Somehow the Tempranillo seems to dominate the blend with its raspberry and licorice aromas. There are some spices and traces of smoke, the nose turning balsamic with time. The palate is medium-bodied with licorice flavors and some unusual charred notes in the finish Robert Parker: 87 points, James Suckling: 90 Points
