El Esteco 2018 Malbec (Calchaquí Valley)

This Salta Malbec is funky up front, with gamy aromas of earthy black fruits. Bold acidity is a touch blaring, so the palate is lively but also scattered. Said acidity makes for forward plum and berry flavors, while this tastes of coffee and baked berry fruits on a finish that's slightly hot and aggressive; drink through 2022. Michael Schachner
