    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense fruity aromas of raspberry, plum, blackberry and cassis immediately greet you upon first sniff. These explosive fruit notes continue on the palate of this light-bodied, easy to drink Malbec. Soft tannins give way to a long finish making this wine enjoyable on its own or paired with roast pork or lamb spareribs.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Scents of violets lead into a strong heart of cherry and mineral flavor in this untamed malbec, intensely red in its fruit and powerful in its tannins. A young wine—almost electric in its energy—with a great future ahead, Lunta is Mendel’s simplest malbec, grown at a vineyard planted in 1928.

    The grapes for the 2010 Lunta Malbec were sourced from 82-year-old ungrafted vines located on the southernmost parcel of the Mendel Vineyard and the wine was made at the Mendel winery. Made in a more forward style than the Mendel offerings, it spent 12 months in French oak (65%) and 35% in stainless steel prior to bottling without fining or filtration. It offers up an alluring bouquet of Asian spices, incense, lavender, and black cherry. Plush, ripe, and pleasure-bent on the palate, this crowd-pleaser is meant for drinking over the next 6 years.

    This is a great smooth wine. I would recommend it and the price is just right. I was referred to this wine because they were out of another bottle that I wanted. Great choice!!!

    3.5 stars. After a couple of hours opening up, extracted fruit flavors dominated. I'm not sure I would have guessed it was a malbec.
