Wine Review: 2006 Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec
WoW! We are glad we waited on this wine because its been calling our name for over a year now to drink it! This bottle came in a clean white tissue paper so it just screams Elegance! and Drink Me! But patience pervailed and we found a very pleasing, flavorful wine. On sight, garnet color with bright ruby edges. On the nose came violets, cherry, mocha, and spice! (especially by the time the wine opened up at the 2nd glass). The mouthfeel was very rich, oily, and full bodied. On the palate, an abundance of rich dark berry, mocha, cinnamon spice, and oak. The tannins have kept up their strength over the years because there was still a nice grip over the palate and a long, lush finish. This wine and red meat are a marriage made in Heaven! Pair with a grilled steak, rich tomato meat pasta’s, strong cheeses, or a beef prepared with light spices.
We love this wine! Rich, full bodied, zesty, excellent fruit, and a long, robust finish. We give this 2006 Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec a 93 point rating. On our SiNoTas scale, a strong A rating for sure! Its one of those situations where you knew you should have bought more of this wine years ago and now that you love it, it will be difficult to find more. But such as life. We enjoyed this wine experience and the patience was well worth it. If you have a 2006 vintage, I would drink it now or within the next 6 months. Its at the peak of perfection now. WineSplashing!!
