We find our 2021 Mr. Popular showing off right away with a deep, purplish hue that’s just a teaser for the showy aromatic profile of intense dark fruit in the glass. A smile of violet and floral hints weave in and out with subtle undertones of vanilla, lending a touch of sweetness. Juicy black fruit flavors stir the crowd, carrying through from the nose, with blackberry jam, ripe plum, and hints of blueberry. Notes of dark chocolate and a whisper of smokiness add complexity to the bouquet. It’s nonstop on the palate too where this Malbec exhibits a full-bodied structure, delivering a bold and velvety mouthfeel. Muscular tannins provide a solid framework, adding a textural depth that complements Mr. Popular’s richness. An elegant balance between fruitiness and acidity contributes to its approachability. Always an MVP with a finish that is long and satisfying, with persistent tannins, offering a delightful grip that leaves a lingering impression. All the things we are looking for in Mr. Popular! Pair this up with a grilled bison smash burger, or if you’re staying in try your favorite loaded stuffed sweet potato with plenty of savory fixings. No matter how you pair Mr. Popular up – you’ll be cheering.
