2011 Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec, $18

Like other malbec recently sampled, the alcohol seems to pull the wine slightly out of balance.  Slightly acidic, good complexity. 

Paired with Ethiopian chicken dish.  This is a spicy dinner, and wine experience changed very little with pairing.

This wine come recommended from a trusted friend and I don't think the scores are necessary representative. I would like to try this bottle again in the future with a better pairing.

Sipped: 2+/6 (good)

Paired: 2+/6 (good)
