Region: Uco Valley
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. The Tempranillo dominates on the palate with its raspberry and licorice aromas. Complex, clean aromas of dark fruits with hints of flowers. There are some spices and traces of smoke, the nose turning balsamic with time. Full body, lots of fruit and richness. Concentrated and fresh.
