Trivento, Lujan de Cuyo (Mendoza, Argentina) Malbec “Golden Reserve” Black Series 2020

($20, Eagle Peak Estates):  Trivento produces a host of Malbec so be sure you read the label.  This plummy one, named “Golden Reserve” and with a black and gold label, is a big, ripe red with suave texture and mild tannins that makes it ideal for entering a crowd this summer around the grill.  What is lacks in complexity it makes up for with a plush dark fruity profile.
