Balbo Malbeck 2005
Dieser Wein der aus einem klassischen Bordeaux- Blend besteht, besticht in der Nase mit kräftigen Aromen nach Cassis, reifen Kirschen und einer ganzen Palette von Gewürzen (Pfeffer, Vanille, Kakao). Der gut strukturierte, mit kräftigen, fleischigen Tanninen ausgestattete Wein endet mit einem lang anhaltenden und harmonischen Finale.
Really yummy. Not worth the money though.
Showing a comely touch of age in the color, the bouquet is a wonderful mix of smoke, cedar, and stone fruits; in the mouth, it reveals layers of flavor, getting deeper and sweeter towards a clean finish. (AV 92, http://argovino.com/?p=378)
Rich, full bodied, great with a steak!
External Reviews for Balbo Malbeck
Well sculpted, this broad-shouldered wine has an array of cedar, coffee, sanguine and cocoa powder notes running along a solid beam of black currant and fig fruit. Has power, but isnrsquo;t top-heavy, with a focused, balanced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Drink now through 2009.
Malbec has been used in French wines for years, usually as part of a blend. More recently, it has gained recognition in Argentina and Chile, as winemakers there bottle it as a single varietal. Susana Balbo strives to create full-bodied wines that are balanced, complex, and simply delicious. This Malbec hits the mark. Itrsquo;s a dark, rich wine with blueberry, anise and mocha flavors and a finish thatrsquo;s luscious and smooth.
Light in style, this malbec feels as refreshing as the cool winds of the Andes. Its pronounced herbal character mixes with sweet strawberry and violet aromas, the structure defined by crisp acidity. Enhance its beauty with venison in a cranberry sauce.
Bright ruby-red. Slightly reduced aromas of black- and blueberry, licorice pastille, violet, menthol and bitter chocolate. Suave on entry, then firm and tightly wound in the midpalate, with a medicinal, almost inky character calling for patience. Tactile and fresh but not yet complex and in need of patience. Will this loosen up in the bottle? Finishes with sweet tannins and lingering fruit.
The dark ruby-colored, medium-bodied 2000 Malbec exhibits a great nose of black pepper-laced blackberries. Medium-bodied, it offers a beguiling panoply of red and black fruits as well as touches of mint. Its character, like Balbo's other wines in this report, would be more attractive if it were fleshed out and had a more supple finish. Projected maturity: 2005-2010.
With a tasty mix of red and blackberry fruit, this medium-weight Malbec also offers chocolate and sweet spice notes. Nice, mouthfilling texture and a juicy finish. Drink now through 2004.
Ripe, almost jammy, with creamy, soft layers of blueberry and boysenberry fruit followed by sweet toast and spice notes on the easy finish. Drink now.
