Trivento Amado Sur Malbec 2013

value - 5/5

yummy 5/5

best pairing - steak and pizza 

Wow. First off, it's on sale until March 31st at BC Liquor stores for $13.99, normally $14.99 and I have to admit, it's lovely. Big and bold, lots of fruit and none of the pepper, ash Malbec jam that normally turns me off.  

Not only is it full, fun and fruity - it's also very reasonably priced. 

It's actually 70% Malbec, 20% Bonarda and 10% Syrah. 

I had to look up Bonarda as I'm not familiar with it. 

Bonarda is unique to Argentina and a fruity light varietal, no doubt adding lots of what I love to this wine along with the 10% Syrah kicker. 

I'm a firm believer that blends are the best or each varietal and make for great wines. 

If you can manage it, this would be a great wine to cellar for a few years.

I suspect this this wine will disappear fast leave some for Wm!
