Fabre Montmayou Malbec Gran Reserve 2005

External Review by Morrell & Company:

The 2005 Malbec Gran Reserva was sourced from a 60+ year old vineyard in Vistalba, Lujan de Cuyo. It was fermented with native yeasts and aged in French oak for 12 months. Opaque purple in color, it has an enticing perfume of cedar, tobacco, pencil lead, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine made in a forward style. It has good depth of flavor, excellent concentration, and a medium-long finish. More complexity would have earned an outstanding rating. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.

Fabre Montmayou Malbec Gran Reserva Mendoza Deep coloured. Smooth, pure, spicy nose leads to a dense palate with nice intensity and delicious spicy structure. A lovely wine.
