Altamira Malbec Grand Reserve Argentina 2009
Tried this wine because we enjoyed the Malbec so much. This is very much a bordeaux like blend. We decanted the wine for an hour before we tried it, and it kept evolving all night. Very complex, with the blue fruit, chocolate, and spices. In one word, I would say it is simply elegant. There is no mahogany yet and it is a 2006, so we are drinking some of the case, and cellaring some. With the bordeaux prices going crazy, I am so glad we found this wine. So far, we are 2 for 2 with this winery.
