Mendel Unus 2019
- Red Wine
Tasting Notes from Wine Advocate
The red blend 2019 Unus has the usual 65% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, but the nose is not as focused as I expected it. Maybe it's too young and needs a little bit of time to absorb the effect of being aged in French barriques for 16 months. Fact is, the oak feels nicely integrated, and the wine is serious, balanced and somewhat austere and combines power and elegance as usual. It's herbal and peppery, spicy with good ripeness and freshness. -reviewed by Luis Gutiérrez
