Punto Final Malbec Reserva 2013

Punto Final, meaning “final period” or “full stop,” symbolizes the point at which the Bodega Renacer winemaking team has accomplished their common goal: a truly outstanding wine.

The grapes for the Punto Final Reserva Malbec are sourced primarily from the Los Patos Vineyard in Perdriel, where the average age of the vines is 80 years. Following fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine is aged for one year in French oak barrels and then six months in bottle before release.

Tasting Notes

This Malbec is a deep ruby red color with violet highlights. On the nose, a combination of red and black fruit aromas mingle with earthy mineral and floral notes highlighted by sweet spice and vanilla from the French oak. Black raspberry and plum flavors dominate the palate along with more subtle flavors of tangy cherries, vanilla, and mocha. The sweet tannins carry through to the long, robust finish.

Food Pairing

This is full-bodied Malbec that pairs best with boldly flavorful meat dishes such as a rib-eye steak with chimichurri.
