Monteviejo Mendoza Valle de Uco 2005

Member Review by Kskasper4:

I bought this bottle on clearance and got quite the deal, this wine had the deepest color I've ever seen it was full boidied with a light pepper flavor, dark chocalate and rich fruit flavors it was slightly dry with long reaching tannins that were wonderfully balanced. I wish I had another bottle.

The 2005 Monteviejo is a blend of 60% Malbec, 20% Syrah, 10% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged for 16 months in new French oak. Inky purple, it offers aromas of toasty oak, espresso, mocha, black cherry and blueberry. On the palate it exhibits a smooth texture, layers of spicy blue and black fruit flavors, light tannin, excellent balance, and a 45-second finish. It will evolve for several years in the bottle but can be enjoyed now with a charcoal grilled Argentinian rib-eye.

($40; includes 20% syrah and bits of merlot and cabernet) Saturated medium ruby. Complex, inviting aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, graphite, minerals, violet, chocolate and nutty oak. Dense, large-scaled and very ripe; a seriously stuffed if ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2005 Monteviejo Monteviejo 750ml
