Valle Las Acequias Malbec Oak 2011


I've reviewed the 2010 vintage of this wine previously.  The label of the 2011 vintage tasted here persists with describing its wine as "Malbec Oak", which strikes me as an unusual description.  Unexpectedly then, I felt the 2011 vintage of this wine didn't stylistically feature much oak influence.  In the glass, the 2011 is rather simple, with an expression of blackberries and currants.   (Region: Mendoza, Argentina, Rating: Acceptable, Would I buy it based on this tasting? No, Drink: now, Tasted: Jan, 2017)
