Bodega Renacer Malbec Punto Final Reserva 2010
Bodega Renacer is a boutique winery located in Lujan de Cuyo-Mendoza. Lujan is considered as one of the best regions for growing Malbec. The winery especializes in Malbec and produces only 4 wines: Punto Final Clasico, Punto Final Reserva, Enamore and Renacer.
Quite a variety of sensory pleasures here, from the lilac note in the bouquet to the tart, juicy center of the flavor and the blueberry jam in the finish. Not a heavyweight, but more than worth the price. (AV 88, http://argovino.com/?p=928)
External Reviews for Bodega Renacer Malbec Punto Final Reserva
The Bodegas Renacer is a new winery in Mendoza, Argentina, an ultra-modern facility was built in 2004. The wine is very new in how its made but the grapes come from vines that are very old. Two vineyards are sourced for this Reserva, each with 50 year old vines yielding barely 2 tons per acre. Grapes are subjected to a double triage and then fermented in stainless steel under the supervision of famed enologist Alberto Antonini. The wine is aged 10 months in French oak barrels and bottled without filtration. The 2008 scored 91 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "A rich Malbec with graham cracker, pastry, blackberrry and boysenberry aromas. Talk about super concentrated; this is thick but balanced, with tannic grip and dark, baked flavors of berry and chocolate. Bulky on the finish, with peppery spice, vanilla and a touch of heat."
Nose: Persistent aromas of red and black fruit, with notes of spice and chocolate. Mouth: Structured, robust and oily, with smooth well-integrated tannins, and a long elegant finish. Pairing: Red meat, game meat, complex dishes garnished with flavorful sauces, medium intensity cheeses, and chocolate desserts.
Ripe yet rustic, leading with undertones of game, spice box and underbrush to the roasted plum and kirsch notes, with a rich, cedary finish. Drink now through 2016.
