Santa Julia Reserva Malbec 2014, Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina

We’ve been periodically trying wines recommended in the Wine of the Weekend email service – some are stars, others, meh…Santa-Julia-Reserva-Malbec-LCBO

This week’s wine is Santa Julia Reserva Malbec 2014, Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina – another Malbec.  While in our opinion, it doesn’t hold a flame to our last Malbec, it’s not a bad wine, especially for the price.

She said: “It reminds me a bit of Beaujolais Nouveau, there’s a flavour in there that you find with younger wines (reminds me of Turkish Delight.)

He said: “This might not be a Malbec to introduce yourself to Malbec – I’d suggest that the last Malbec we tested is a much better example of just how good this varietal can be.”

Do you agree?  Why not try both wines and see which you like, and why.  Here’s the details:

  • This week’s wine:  Santa Julia Reserva Malbec 2014, Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina LCBO #429761 $12.95
  • Our preferred wine:      Catena Malbec 2012, Vintages 478727, $19.95
