What if the best malbecs from Mendoza were actually made in Bordeaux, perhaps Fronsac? Putting aside malbec’s roots in Cahors, you’d probably end up with something like this: direct, refined, with a modicum of sweetness, perhaps a little extra tannin, but overall very elegant. Smooth notes of dark plum and perfectly delicate and subtle overall, except for that touch of tannin, which will hopefully sort itself out with aging. From some of the oldest vines in Argentina, at 103 years. (AV 88, http://argovino.com/?p=775)


Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): The 2009 Malbec Gran Reserva was sourced from 103 year old vines and aged for 12 months in new French oak. Smoky oak, game, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry inform the nose of a layered, plush, flavorful wine with superb volume and length for its modest price. It has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years and will provide enjoyment through 2019. (Dec 2011)
