2017 Durigutti Malbec
/ Single Bottle
A lot of times malbec from Argentina can be overly oaked and astringent without a trace of fruit anywhere in sight. And the price remains consistently high, regardless. This is the exception to that generality. It is a small production, finely crafted, dark purple teeth stainer that smokes with Cuban cuisine and would be a religious experience at one of those restaurants where you hold up a sign for the waiter to bring more meat over. It's a tough, tannic customer on it's own, if you're looking for a mouth fight.
