2018 Trivento Reserve Malbec
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 89: The largest production from Trivento is the 2018 Reserve Malbec, with some 8.5 million bottles. It's a straightforward, fruit-driven, fresh and drinkable wine that mixes Malbec grapes from Luján de Cuyo, which provides round fruit, and the Valle de Uco, which adds freshness. Only part of the wine has contact with oak, and the wine comes through as fruit forward, very clean and juicy, like biting into a ripe cluster of Malbec fruit, refreshing and very tasty. Delicious textbook Malbec. It's not easy to make so many liters of wine of this quality at an unbeatable price.
Tasting Notes Trivento is well-balanced, with a bouquet of plum, strawberry, cherry and raspberry aromas the meld exquisitely with vanilla, coffee and chocolate notes from the oak. A graceful palate and good body displays sweet tannins and a lingering velvety finish.
