This blend of rich black grapes provides layers of flavour from black currant, dark cherry, vanilla, nutmeg, and black pepper. It's soft, round mouthfeel and refreshing finish make this a great value sipper - just watch out for the 14% abv..
Pair with lamb, or beef.

****1/2 drink or cellar Exceptional Value!
Trivento Amado Sur Malbec/Bonarda/Syrah 2012
Mendoza (37036) $16.95 14% alcohol
You just cannot go wrong with this red blend—70% Malbec, 18% Bonarda, 12% Syrah it’s like all these grapes fell in love with each other. There are wonderful aromas of ripe red and black currants, a pinch of bitter chocolate, velvety-full mouth feel with soft tannin and one smooth fruity finish. It approaches Nirvana. (Julie Stock)




Natalie's Review

Trivento Amado Sur Malbec Bonarda Syrah 2012, Mendoza, Argentina: This robust red wine is a blend of 80% Malbec, 10% Bonarda and 10% Syrah grapes that was matured for a year in oak. Bursting with aromas of black fruit, smoke and tar. This wine needs cellar time and decanting of 2 hours. Pencil led and black fruit on the finish. Try it with hearty meat dishes. Match with robust dishes of beef, pork or lamb. Drink: 2014-2017. 37036 14% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 88/100. January 10, 2015 Best Value Red Wine. Heavenly Hamburger Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
