The Mendel 2011 Unus is a red blend comprised of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot. Deep purple in color, the 2011 Unus is bursting with aromas of dark cherries, plums, and roasted cocoa. Flavors of ripe cherry, berry fruits, cocoa, and vanilla make this a big, yet very suave wine and there are loads of ripe, soft tannins that linger on the soft finish. Robert Parker says, "The palate is full-bodied, a good combination of the backbone of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the meat of the Malbec and a good punch in the palate helped by the Petit Verdot. The blend works really well, both in the nose and the palate. A great blend, quite classical, that should age well."
