Epica is Mendoza Malbec produced by one of Chile's finest wineries. Vina San Pedro is an award winning winery in Chile, famous for outstanding, excellent value wines. When they decided to make a Mendoza Malbec they sourced top quality fruit from the Uco Valley. This, ripe, fruit-forward Malbec is blended with 5% Syrah and 2% Cabernet Franc. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "Mossy, foresty aromas are rugged and settle into blackberry. An intense, pushy palate is woody in feel, with hot, minty, oaky black-fruit flavors that improve with airing. Heat and toasty notes rise up on the finish of this bold Mendoza Malbec, a first from San Pedro (Chile)."
this is another example of a fine Mendoza Malbec, fruity on the taste then goes to a more complex mid palate and finally finishes with a soft undertone of oaky vanilla toast. pairs well with most meats and hearty pasta dishes. very good value, will probably buy this again.
