Butcher’s Hook 2015 Mendoza Malbec 2015

Lot 18, $18

Info on Vivino


Aaron: Skip this wine.  Red tar and raspberry with cherry cough syrup made the nose a bit off-putting.  Tart and bitter, the flavor featured awkward tannins on the middle of the tongue, resulting in a puckering of underripe fruit and watermelon rinds. Weak flavor then a punch of spicy pepper.  Horrible.  83 points

Teri: This bottle is bold with hearty tannins and needs a strong meaty dish to stand up to the flavors. It is on the earthy side with a bit too much bite on the end. The flavors of white pepper, leafy tree roots and underlining tone of chocolate covered cherries were tight and not completely enjoyable. Perhaps it needed a few hours to aerate but I would recommend just to skip this bottle. 85 points
