Product Description
Details

Produced by Bodegas Arraez, Mala Vida is made from a blend of four varieties.

Specifically, Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Tempranillo, all coming from vineyards 15 to 30 years of age.

Separately harvested and fermented for 4 weeks in stainless steel tanks, Mala Vida 2018 was then aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels with different leves of toastiness.

This Spanish red wine from Valencia is cheerful and ridiculously priced.

Nose

This red wine by Bodegas Arraez smells of juicy red fruit, sweet spices, dim toasted and smokey nuances and a layer of Mediterranean garrigue and balsam.

Palate

This young red wine from Valencia is well-balanced and creamy, with a good acidity, smooth tannins and a long finish with remembrances of toast, red fruit and smoke.

Our personal opinion

Simply enjoy Mala Vida 2018.
