Lorca Fantasia Malbec 2012


The weight of this bottle is, well, normal.  This is unexpected for malbec from Mendoza, where usually I require reinforcements to be called in to lift the bottle beyond my ankles.  The wine inside has aromatics of clove, anise, dark plum, gravel and plum skins.  There's balance, wild blackberry and game characters on the palate.  It almost comes together as something more, and is enjoyable drinking.

Rating: Acceptable to Good, Abv: 14%, Price: low $20s, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.mauriciolorca.com, Tasted: 2014
