Some dark fruitiness, but overpowered by oak which lended vanilla and coconut cream. I think I enjoyed the oak more than the fruit. Virutally no finish.
Originally grown in the Southeast of France and one of the blending grapes used in the wines of Bordeaux, Malbec has turned into a premier wine of Argentina. As is the case in all of the more interesting wine regions of the world, the fruit matures and acquires the very unique qualities and flavor profile that the influence of weather and soil conditions create. In most of Argentina, and especially the areas surrounding the state of Mendoza, Malbec grows and matures with great intensity. The 2007 Huarpe Taymente Malbec is certainly an example of a 'bodegas boutique' wine... both elegant and rustic with a friendly more fruit driven style.
Nice, smooth firm tannis, soft oak aging and roundness, a favorite malbec and I highly recommend
