Bodega Weinert Malbec 2002

Member Review by Ixian:

Most important of the user´s tags : drink now. Because if you wait any longer you´ll end up drinking vinagre. On the nose bit odd but nice. But when taking a sip : ouch ! Dry ! Very ! Dry Fruits (blue berries, plums) and tobacco. Thank god I had some good meat with it. Not any of my favorites. Maybe it was a good drinker in 2006.

Founded in 1975, Bodega y Cavas de Weinert is located in Lujan de Cuyo, Argentina´s craddle for top quality wines. The  original building of 1890 of spanish colonial architecture, reminiscent of an old winery owned by the family Otero until 1920, catches the eye by its beauty, inviting those who pass by to know what it guards in its inside. Don Bernardo C. Weinert, founder and owner, could be defined as an entrepreneur. Born in a small german colony in Southern Brazil, he built his name around international transport in South America. Fascinated by the world of wine, he decided to found his own winery in Argentina with one unconditional philosophy: producing high quality wines. Before engaging in such a treat, he made an extensive study about Mendoza: its climate, soil, grapes; and came to the conclusion that Lujan de Cuyo was the perfect place for his project. After a thorough restauration work of the building acquired in 1975, he brought in the latest technology in vinification of that time and was joined by acclaimed oenologists. By then everyone believed him to be insane for facing such a treat. But time proved him to be right. After the first commercial vintage of 1976, by 1977 he produced Weinert Malbec Star 1977, a wine known and acclaimed by the world´s most prestigious tasters. Don Bernardo C. Weinert is a man whose vision for businesses is very simple: "as long as you mantain your own philosophy and keep it throughout the years, you are on the right track." Read less

Tannins are still firm and the sweetness is offset by a pleasant tartness. I would think that this bottle could sit for another two years and still be pleasant. I don't know if the last reviewer had a bad bottle, but I don't find it dry at all. I am also drinking this unpaired with any food, and it is still pleasant.
