Bodega Elena de Mendoza Malbec 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Soft oak and bruised blackberry fruit on the nose are joined by nice leather, vanilla, and gamey sulfur driven aromas. Very smooth and a little soft in the mouth though this does deliver a layered impact delivering black cherry fruit backed up by oak tones, soil notes and a nice spiced, almost floral herbal component. Tannins are a little dusty on the finish, which adds a bit of a rustic edge here, though over good length with attractive dried meat and leather notes on the finale. The sulfur is a bit of a turn-off but this remains a fairly attractive, balanced wine. 86pts

Good body, smooth, dark fruits and leather. Good wine for the price.

Right off the bat theres a rich & bold smoke flavor, then there's a smooth finish. I would buy again. This was my first Malbec. If anyone has a good recommendation let me know please.
