Trumpeter Familia Rutini Red Blend Tupungato Malbec Syrah 2011

Member Review by aronowm2:

This is what I'm talking about. $8? Are you kidding me? This kills most $50 California cabs. Big fruit bomb with notes of spicy cinnamon and just gobs of fruit. Like a blackberry pie. Possibly the best QPR I have ever experienced. The label is so unassuming that it can get easily overlooked in a Trader Joe's or another large retailer. This is a steal. Get your hands on as many bottles as you can and drink throughout winter. Gift em, drink em. whatever. Surely the '09 will cost double.

Black fruit and cocoa on the nose, big and jammy on the palate. Medium body and acidity, with soft tannins. Easy drinking.

Juicy raspberry, blackberry and fig flavors are backed by well-integrated toast on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.

Inky and dense with attractive berry aromas and a touch of cinnamon and sweet spice. A fully, fruity wine, with excellent body, intense tannins, flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and plum intermingled with hints of cardamom and pepper, and a long, full finish. - Winery

Floral and juicy, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit backed by bright acidity, modest tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.

Floral aromas lead the show, backed by meatiness, minerality and wild sage and thyme aromas. The palate is fresh and young, with edgy but saturated plum and raspberry flavors. Turns more narrow and simple with time, but for a basic Malbec it more than gets the job done.

Elegant, floral style with red berry fruit, vanilla and violet notes. Creamy, toasty finish. Drink now.

Soft and composed bouquet, with fruit aromas you will recognize and nothing funky or strained. The mouth is complete and better than ordinary, with pure but simple cassis, blueberry and plum fruit. A hint of oak allows for coffee and mocha to grace the modest finish.
