Cholila Ranch Malbec 2007

Member Review by mwid625:

This wine has a brownish tinge. The nose is subdued. There is some spiciness and grip in the mouthfeel. There is a black pepper finish. This wine has more of an "old world" feel for me.

This is a tasty wine. It needs to breathe a little, but it is actually quite velvety immediately after corking. Full-bodied, plum, currant, and later a very lightly lingering smokiness.

Aged in both French and American oak, this Patagonian wine features creamy red raspberry and black cherry fruit flavors supported by a backbone of fresh acidity and chewy, chocolaty tannin.

The Cholila Ranch is widely believed to be the area where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid retired, and with the ability to produce some really fine Malbecs I can see why. The wine's aromatics are very flowery and pretty, giving the impression the wine will be a softer style. The body is indeed softer than most Malbecs, but the underlying complexity and the flavors of black cherry and California plum give this wine some personality. This wine was made to be served with comfort food: meat loaf, stew, soup, etc. And the comfort of the ranch must have been what convinced Butch and The Kid to stay.
