Bodega Trivento, Mendoza (Argentina) Malbec Reserve 2019

($12):  This lighter styled Malbec will appeal especially to those who find most Malbecs too overpowering or heavy.  Still, it has good concentration despite its lack of muscularity.  Savory, smoke-y undertones balance the dark fruity profile.  Suave, mild tannins mean this is a wine to enjoy now.  It’s a good example of “less is more.”  The price adds to its enjoyment.
