Soft fruit leads to bright acidity and soft tannins. Food friendly.

Decent bog-standard malbec. No standing on ceremony here: the inky nose is present, albeit a little muted, and the traditional sweet, red fruits come across reasonably well, with a touch of iron. It just feels like it could try a little harder, with more concentration and a touch more complexity. A decent pairing for milder meats. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=1087)

Lovely, lush malbec leaning to dry. Very bold flavors. Drank well alone and paired with various meat and cheeses. Definite pop of palate pleasing black pepper and other spices as well as lively fruits, berries, chocolates and earth flavors. Admittedly, we tend to really enjoy our Malbecs. Quoting from other websites: 89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar " Dark red. Laid-back, slightly rustic aromas of currant, chocolate, mocha and leather. Supple and suave but not overly concentrated, with good inner-mouth energy to the flavors of blackberry, chocolate and mint. A rather dry, classic malbec with a savory finish displaying fine tannins and a lingering chocolate note." (2/ 2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate " The 2009 Malbec displays a fragrant bouquet of Asian spices, lavender, dried herbs, and black cherry. Medium-bodied and with some elegance on the palate, this spicy offering is nicely balanced and surprisingly lengthy. Drink this excellent value over the next 3-4 years. The new releases from Durigutti are all fine values made from fruit purchased in Uco and Agrelo. They are bottled without fining or filtration." (12/ 2011) Wine Spectator " Ripe, with flashy mocha and melted licorice notes up front, backed by crushed plum and raspberry fruit. A crowd-pleasing style. Drink now." (8/ 2011)

Color is dark purple. On the nose, mainly blackberry and blueberry. On the tongue, predominantly jammy blackberry and blueberry with overtones of cassis and tar with subtle tar and smoke. Medium bodied plus, refined tannins, moderate fruity/smokey finish; good velvety, dense and fruity mouthfeel. Recommended.

Lush nose laced with black-berry and plum fruit. Soft yet focused on the palate, with additional flavors of strawberry and wild herbs. Medium tannins and balanced acidity.

Another spectacular effort from one of Argentina's busiest winemakers, Hector Durigutti, this malbec comes from a 16 year old vineyard in La Consulta (Valle de Uco). Soft blue and purple fruits are pure, with just a hint of spiciness, well balanced acidity and a plush texture and lingering finish.

Ripe, verging on jammy, but manages to keep its raspberry and blackberry fruit honest in the end. Flashes of sweet spice and mineral, with a juicy finish. Drink now.

Durigutti is a noted Mendoza consultant who makes more ambitious wines, as well as this fruity and approachable malbec. It's full of juicy cherries and strawberries, with a springtime freshness.

Good ruby-red. Dark berries, sweet cherry, spices and smoked meat on the nose. Supple on entry, with a jammy sweetness. Easygoing currant and spice flavors. Not bad, but I lowered my score a bit for a distinct greenness that was not in harmony with the wine's riper elements.
