External Reviews for Rutini Malbec
A dark, chewy style, with thickly layered iron, black currant and smoky toast notes that wind their way to a brawny finish. Plenty of stuffing, but not for fans of the elegant style. Best from 2007 through 2009.
Yet again this relatively affordable wine shows the charms and potential of Argentinean Malbec. It has a beautiful color and full, fruity aromas. The palate runs a bit sappy and upright, with cherry-based fruit that will go great with any type of grilled or braised meat. Clean, ripe and tasty, with the slightest bit of perky acids.
Ripe and juicy, with a solid core of raspberry and boysenberry fruit layered with sweet toast and vanilla notes. Drink now through 2008.
Dense but forward, with layers of raspberry and boysenberry fruit pushed by melted licorice and fruitcake notes on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.
Dark red. Slightly musky aromas of black fruits, licorice, mint, leather and pepper. Juicy, spicy and on the lean side, with a cool peppery quality to the currant flavor. Comes across as a bit pinched, and less sweet than the merlot, but not hard. This fresh malbec needs to be served with food.
Waxy black fruits, pepper, and dark cherries make up the aromatic profile of the 2003 Malbec La Consulta. A structured, firm white, it has impressive depth, loads of dark fruit flavors, and a rustic, tannin-laden finish. Drink this value over the next 4-5 years.
The purple-colored 2006 Malbec was sourced from a 65-year-old vineyard and aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak. The nose emits scents of cedar, tobacco, blueberry, and black raspberry leading to a firm, slightly muted wine. The flavors are savory and it has good grip but the finish is slightly compact. Another two years of bottle age may round it out, but it should be consumed over the near term.
