Food Pairings for Bodega Renacer Malbec Punto Final Reserva
A uniquely herbal bouquet for a malbec, followed by juicy plums and cherries; the high alcohol content (14.5%) is immediately noticeable but burns off eventually, leaving a reasonably long finish. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=418)

External Reviews for Bodega Renacer Malbec Punto Final Reserva
The 2006 Punto Final Reserva contains 99% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc aged for 10 months in French oak. It, too, was sourced from vineyards over 50 years of age but with lower yields. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a fragrant bouquet of cedar, scorched earth, lavender, and black cherry. Layered, dense, and concentrated, it has tons of savory black fruit, spice notes, and excellent balance. This lengthy effort can be enjoyed now but will evolve in the bottle for 2ndash;3 years.
A former partner at Vintilde;a San Pedro, Chilean Patricia Reich set out to change his career without leaving the business. So in 1999 he went to Mendoza to create Bodega Renacer, one of the first boutique wineries in Argentina. Renacer produces about 100,000 bottles, with a focus on malbec. The wineryrsquo;s style has been molded by acclaimed Italian winemaker consultant, Alberto Antonini, with grapes sourced form Jujaacute;n de Cuyo and Uco Valley. The Reserva Punto Final is an affordable introduction to that style, with aromas and flavors of violets and cherries and a round, soft texture mdash; big enough for a rib eye.
A juicy, modern style, with tasty fig, boysenberry, mocha and spice notes, followed by a ripe, vivid finish. Drink now.
Ripe and racy, featuring layers of boysenberry, plum skin, and floral raspberry flavors accented by espresso and cocoa nibs. The minerally finish is lively, with modest grip. Drink now through 2012.
The 2005 Punto Final Malbec Reserva is dark ruby-colored with an attractive nose of cedar and black cherry. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has plenty of savory flavor, density, and excellent length. It can be enjoyed over the next six years.
This comes across as a textbook malbec in its aromas of violets and sour cherries. With air, the wine takes on notes of leather and sweet spices that lend complexity and density. The palate is tense, with the grip for a ribeye.
Charcoal and ripe berry fruit announce this as a serious, masculine Malbec. The Palate answers the bell, delivering tight blackberry and cassis flavors in front of a tannic, sturdy finish. Shows great foundation and potential; best in late 2007 and 2008.
Another success from the Renacer Estate in Mendoza, Argentina and *several steps above your everyday malbec*. On the nose, a combination of red and dark fruits and a bit of toastiness from the French oak. In the mouth the wine is complex and structured wih a long finish.
