TRIVENTO GOLDEN RESERVE MALBEC 2015 ($21)—While it’s rare that I ever drink the same wine night after night, were I forced to live far from a wineshop, I’d happily repeatedly quaff this rich Malbec from Mendoza made by a young group of vignerons. Winemaker Gérman Di Cesare ages this Malbec for 12 months in French oak, then in bottles for another year. At 14.5% alcohol it has body, structure and plenty of complexity at a good piece. This I could drink many nights in a row.
