Cholila Ranch Malbec 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

Produced in the Patagonia region of Argentina, where the famous outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid spent time in the early 20th century. This a well-balanced wine aged in French and American oak that delivers wonderful aromas of plum, black cherry, spice and violets. Dark fruit flavors are prevalent on the palate with hints of vanilla, mocha and a touch of smoke. Delicious paired with beef or chicken empanadas.

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.
