A Powerful Polished Malbec & Steak Pairing
Grown on 25 year old vines about 900 meters above sea level the grapes are picked that go into Trapiche's 2011 Broquel Malbec.
Aged in oak for 15 months this Malbec comes alive with plumberry, black raspberry, vanilla and a hint of smoke. There is some nice plum spice on the palate. The wine is full bodied with light tannins and nice acidity.
Pair with a nice grilled steak or prime rib. This wine is great now or cellar it for 2 or three years.
