2019 Domaine Bousquet Reserva Malbec, Tupungato, Argentina (750 ml)
Focused black plums and blueberries. Very fresh and layered with an undertone of incense. The flavors are well packed in the center palate with a natural expression of acidity, which is balanced effortlessly by lightly chewy tannin. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but better in 2021.

Brisk, clean, ripe plum fruit with judicious wood use. Lovely firm frame of tannin and mellow acidity supporting the characterful fruit.
-Decanter, 91 pts
Juicy, well-framed dried cherry, raspberry and red plum flavors bear a mouthfilling richness in this red, with lilting savoriness midpalate leading to a mineral-infused finish.
-Wine Spectator, 90 pts
Deep Violet color. On the nose, ground-mushrooms and red berries aromas. Notes of violet prune and spices. Medium body with soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish.
