2017 Nieto Senetiner Don Nicanor Malbec, Mendoza
90 Points - James Suckling
This intense wine has a deep red hue with remarkable shades of violet. The nose offers aromas of plum and cassis and some mineral notes with well-integrated oak. On the palate the wine is elegant, fresh, and delicate with a medium structure and a long finish.
