Bodega Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2009
Incredible dark red/purple color. The aromas of sweet French oak and espresso get more complex with every swirl of the glass, unveiling black plum, ripe raspberry, and violet aromas. The wine is full-bodied, dense, deep and chewy with flavors of black raspberry, plums, roasted herb, and caramel notes. This beauty could be enjoyed now with a nice ribeye steak or leg of lamb since it shows incredible balance for such a concentrated wine.
Good, reasonably priced Malbec
External Reviews for Bodega Mendel Malbec Mendoza
The 2009 Malbec was made from 84-year-old vines and aged for 12 months in 33% new French oak. Wood smoke a hint of cocoa Asian spices incense and black cherry compose the bouquet of this impeccably balanced incipiently complex layered wine. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2021. -Jay Miller Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
