Bodegas Salentein Malbec Reserve 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

<strong>Reg. Price $23.99, Our Price $18.99 SAVE 20%</strong> A bright purple wine of great intensity and depth, with aromas full of personality, in which the Malbec character is perfectly recognizable, with reminiscences of fresh and ripe plums, a touch of cherry and a touch of mint as seasoning, accompanied by slight spicy nuances and tobacco as a result of ageing in oak barrels. Its mouth-feel is black fruit driven and round. This complex Malbec offers flavors reminiscent of ripe red berries, with a fine concentration and the sweet tannins typical of the variety. The wine continues to reveal its structure and balanced acidity through its deliciously long finish. This is a tremendous wine offering tremendous value.

The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps. Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system. The four wines converge in a circular central chamber.which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples. Read less

Purple, lively, highly intense, offering aromas of marked personality and typcity, most noticeably, fresh plum and violets. Oak has definitely contributed some complexity; however, it is not easily distingushable given the overriding character of this wine. In the mouth the impact of its sweetness and softness is felt almost with surprise, being a relatively young, well-structured wine. No doubt barrel-ageing did its job in terms of polymerization and polyphenol concentration. There is a note of fresh wildberries, in balance with some mamalde reminiscence; acidity is well balanced, delivering freshness without compromising roundness.

The purple-colored 2006 Malbec Reserva was aged for 12-14 months in seasoned French oak. It offers up a bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, mineral, violets, and black cherry. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has plenty of ripe fruit, enough structure... Robert Parker. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2006 Bodegas Salentein Malbec Reserve 750ml
