Trapiche Gran Medalla Malbec

Crafted in honor of the 125th anniversary of Mendoza, Argentina’s Bodega Trapiche, Trapiche Gran Medalla Malbec displays everything we love about the country’s signature grape. Produced from Uco Valley-grown fruit, the wine is bold, rustic, and expressive, balancing the line between earthy, woody herb and dusty leather notes and juicy Morello cherry, black plum, and violets. It is a wine that can easily age 10-15 years but is also supple and silky, ready to enjoy now with a bit of time decanting to allow the wine to breathe. Tannins are present but not overbearing, giving a nice lift to the fruit. Aged 18 months in new French oak, plus an additional six months in bottle, allowing the wine to settle before release. The oak lends a spicy note of dried cinnamon and crushed nutmeg, with a hint of wild lavender on the finish. Enjoy with a hearty grilled ribeye with red wine mushrooms. #cheers
