External Reviews for Balbo Malbec
Good full medium ruby. Crushed blackberry, licorice and violet on the lively nose. Quite ripe and sweet in the mouth, showing impressive volume and breadth for the price range. Finishes with serious ripe tannins and noteworthy persistence. Susanna Balbo's
Unapologetically modern, with a big core of black and purple fruit and toasty oak to back it up. A flashy Malbec that will make friends easily.
A dense, chewy red, exhibiting dark raspberry coulis, blackberry reduction and plum skin notes that remain fresh through the smoke- and mineral-tinged finish. Fine length. Drink now.
Full, saturated red-ruby. Very pure, soil-inflected aromas and flavors of blackberry liqueur, mocha, truffle and smoky minerality, complicated by hints of milk chocolate and crushed herbs. Juicy and spicy but a bit youthfully imploded, with enticing sweetness leavened by brisk acidity. Most impressive today on the long, energetic, firmly tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of blackberry, black cherry, espresso and dark chocolate. Give this at least two or three years in the cellar before pulling the cork. Susana Balbo is now toasting her barrels with convection, which she says gives sweetness to the wines without an overbearing oakiness. (A second bottle, of equal quality, was more plush and pliant in the mid-palate, but equally long and gripping.)
