Altar Uco Edad Moderna Red Blend 2018
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Vallée d’Uco|
The 2018 Edad Moderna Blend is equal parts of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, mostly from old vines fermented and matured in raw concrete; despite that, it had a curious smoky twist. It had energy and complexity, with the varieties very integrated (most were fermented together), juicy and supple, with fresh flavors of ripe fruit and some chalky tannins. It should do great with food. 6,000 bottles were filled in October 2018.
