in French oak

Revancha’s 2016 ‘La Primera’ Malbec comes from the Uco Valley and Mendoza, Argentina, and represents the style of wine this world-famous wine growing region is best known for. Grown at a high-elevation site, this fantastic wine is fruity and full-bodied with outstanding cellaring capacity.

Deep red in color, the 2016 ‘La Primera’ Malbec has an intense nose with fresh fruit notes of blackberries and black cherries with floral violet accents. After the wine is swirled in the glass, spices such as peppercorn and vanilla emerge, along with hints of caramel and toast from the time spent aging in oak barrels. The palate boasts sweet tannins, increasing complexity, and a persistent finish. Malbec is an excellent match for Rib-Eye steaks. Enjoy!
