Toneles Tonel 22 Malbec 2017 Bottle
Rated 90 points Tim Atkin. Hard to beat for its sheer exuberance and gluggability, this is a brilliantly priced Argentinean Malbec with classic violet perfume, a touch of smoky oak and oodles of plum, blackberry and liquorice fruit. Made for a juicy steak, but this is smooth enough to work with spring lamb, too. –
Staff Comments: Darker shades of red and violet in the glass. Aromas of bing cherrie black berries and violets reach out and greet you with a sense of great things to come. Upfruit fruit with notes of black cherry, black berries, fig and slight notes of toasted vanilla and hints of oak. Medium to full bodied with structured tannins. A true stand out Malbec!
Staff Comments: From Argentina and such an easy drinker! Huckleberries, dusted cocoa powder, hints of campfire, and black cherries. For the price, this could be your “Go to Malbec.” It’s light to medium bodied and drinking nicely now. We had this with smoked sausage gumbo and cotija cheese and it was great!
*An Argonaut Select Product.
Wine AdvocateThe young and juicy 2017 Tonel 22 Malbec was fermented in concrete, and one-third of the wine matured in neutral oak barrels for six to eight months. It has ripeness and fruit-driven aromas and flavors but with very good acidity and freshness, which is a constant in the house.
