Altos las Hormigas Malbec Clásico 2010
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
A mild malbec with a faint nose and a bright, inoffensive flavor, quite a good substitute for a cheap bottle of Cahors but likely a touch too acidic for fruit lovers. The key is to leave it open for a day or two – then the wine takes on a velvety yet still very direct quality. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=597)
The first sip revealed a malbec with flavors of black cherry, fading into a concentrated cacophony of spices and chocolate. Full Review here! http://malbeceamos.com/2011/10/27/2010-altos-las-hormigas-malbec/
External Reviews for Altos las Hormigas Malbec Clásico
This plump red offers rounded cherry, plum and raspberry notes laced with a modest touch of roasted vanilla. Solid. Drink now.
Good, solid mixed berry fruit, with sweet smoke and spice notes. The round, fleshy finish has a nice brier tint. Textbook introduction to the grape. Drink now.
Opens with tarry, cooked aromas but with airing, oak and ripe, earthy berry notes squeak out. The palate is chewy and solid, with extract and tannic grab as well as smoky, sultry flavors of roasted black fruits and bouillon. Meaty and satisfying.
The entry level Malbec has always been a superb value and the 2007 Malbec is no exception. It gets three months of exposure to French and American oak interstaves prior to bottling. Medium crimson-colored, it exhibits a smoky, spicy, black cherry bouquet. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with surprising depth and savory fruit for its modest price. Forward and easygoing it will provide much pleasure over the next several years. It is an ideal barbecue wine.
Light and fresh, with a tasty beam of raspberry and cherry fruit backed by modest, well-integrated toast. There's a nice lingering licorice note. Drink now.
This is ripe, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit laced with notes of mocha and fruitcake. Fleshy and round. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now.
