This is quite attractive on the nose with a floral base note framing the cinnamon dusted plum and black cherry notes on the nose, and picking up a bit of dried herb with air. Round and plump up front, the rich plum and blackberrry fruit is nicely supported by integrated acids and rounded tannins. There’s some obvious wood on the mid-palate acting as a bit of a spice accent to the fruit, and the wood tannin shows through on the moderately long finish but the fruit here is quite bright, fresh and persistent showing off flashes of herbs and a licorice note. This has fine fruit and complexity and a lovely, inviting texture supple, smooth and yet innately firm. 92pts

Good bright full ruby. Aromas of plum licorice spicecake and nutty oak. Mellow lush and sweet with insidious plum and spice flavors spreading out to coat the palate. More open-knit and resolved than the 2011 version but less fruity. Finishes long and ripe with broad serious tannins and an invitingly suave texture. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2010 Mendel Malbec comes from un-grafted 82-year-old vines in Mayor Drummond and Perdriel that undergoes a tripartite aging in new, second and third year oak (Taransaud). It has an expressive bouquet with scents of blackberry, raspberry and dark plum infused with thyme and touches of wild mint. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, beautifully defined tannins. This is a very natural Malbec, imbued with finesse and poise, with an almost effervescent freshness and vitality on the finish. It encapsulates everything great about Mendoza Malbec. Drink now–2020+.

Layers of spice, coffee and charcoal frame the rich plum and blackberry fruit character, which asserts a floral note on the finish. Drink now.
