A Good Value Cabernet and Malbec Blend from Argentina

CaptureArgentina is known for great red wine, primarily from either Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.  The high elevation vineyards in the Andes seem perfectly matched for these two varietals, and we have enjoyed both great value wines and high end classics from the region.  Here we review a value priced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, which is a perfect combination.

Bodega Trivento sits at the feet of the Andes Mountains, with over 1500 hectares (over 3500 acres) of vineyards in the best wine growing regions of Mendoza.  The vineyards are equiped with drip irrigation systems and managed carefully.  They make a series of wines, from the high end Eolo Malbec, through theDry Irrigation Golden Reserve wines, the Amado Sur Malbec and Torrontes, and then a group of Reserve wines.  You can learn more about the winery and their wines on their website at http://trivento.com/web/index.php.

We have one of their Reserve wines to report on, the 2016 Trivento Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – Malbec.  The grapes are primarily from the Maipú and Luján de Cuyo within Mendoza.  Aged separately for 6 months in French oak, the wines are combined and then aged for another 6 months in bottle prior to release.

Our thoughts:IMG_1330 the wine is a medium red in color, with an oaky nose of red fruit, including plum and cherry.  On the palate there is a little caramel and vanilla along with the ripe fruit.  This has firm tannins, nice balance and a very long finish.  The wine retails for about $11, which is a value price for the quality.  We would certainly recommend this wine.

Anyone familiar with the world wine industry is aware of the levels of quality Mendoza can attain, and the great values many wines represent  This wine is definitely one of those good values.

We suggest you take a closer look at Trivento, and we look forward to seeing what some of their higher end wines are like.

A votre santé
