Dinner tonight roasted pork done with Rosemary and Garlic served with mashed garlic potatoes and steamed asparagus. Usually served with a white wine or a Pinot Noir, but tonight it was Malbec. Another nice wine from Mendoza; a Trivento Malbec Reserve 2011 ($11).
Amado Sur, the color was a deep dark red. The aromas were more red fruit and berries on the nose with only a hint of vanilla and/or spice. Not as much fruit flavors as the Amado Sur, but plenty enough to make the wine very enjoyable. The finish was medium to long, some spice and pepper with a little raspberry and cherry. The pairing with the pork roast was excellent. Enjoy with roasted meats, barbeque, and full flavored foods.
This was my second Malbec this week and there is more to come by World Malbec Day on April 17. Suggested price for the Trivento Malbec Reserve is $11, but found in most locations under $10. More than reasonable for this quality of Argentina Malbec. Very Highly Recommended.
