Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec 2007 (Mendoza)

Tasted 8/10/11 with Clem, Ian and Sara on our 'South American tasting night'.
14% ABV, about £12 UK retail.
This is the third or fourth vintage of this wine from Concha y Toro's Argentinian operation that I have tasted. Mid-purple, clear and youthful in appearance. The nose is gamey and has hints of white pepper. There's a full hit of American oak on the palate but then the wine feels a little closed. Not as approachable yet as earlier vintages at this stage. Needs longer, 1-2. Well made. From 2012, 17/20
