DeCopas Malbec

This wine from DeCopas is one that I don’t have a lot of back story for. It’s an Argentine malbec from Mendoza — like many inexpensive malbecs you find in the US. I can also tell you that the DeCopas brand is part of the Trivento portfolio, which is owned by Concha y Toro, the mega-producer from Chile. It’s interesting how connected many wine brands really are.

This is a pretty straight forward, simple malbec. But it’s decent for the price.

Black cherry, barnyard and black pepper aromas are the most prominent characteristics of the nose.  The palate brings black cherry, blackberry and strawberry flavors with moderate concentrations.  It’s very fresh tasting.  The acidity is sufficient.  The mouthfeel is smooth.  The finish is medium-long and pleasant.

  1. Tim I agree for the price this is a pretty good Malbec. Lots of black cherry and pepper in the aroma. I thought it had a more cherry than strawberry in the taste.

  2. Thanks for sharing your POV, Chuck. I know you’re a Malbec fan, what other bargain-malbec do you recommend?
