Today is the the third edition of Malbec World Day, an international celebration dedicated entirely to Argentina's most representative grape.
We'll be celebrating with a 2011 Layer Cake Wines Malbec, sourced from Mendoza, Argentina. I liked the screw top, have heard good things about the wines, but mostly wanted to get out of the wine shop before my two young sons broke something. :)
*Tasting Notes: Surprising. Tart at first, more viscous and sweeter immediately after. Opened up nicely while sipping and waiting. Deep dark red color. Scents of dark, ripe cherries and cocoa. Nice legs when swirled. Plum and dark chery flavors mixed with tobacco, coffee, and chocolate. Luxuriant, round mouthfeel, slight tannins on long finish.
