Fabre Montmayou Malbec Mendoza Gran Reserva 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): ...from vines over 80 years old in Vistalba and Las Compuertas cropped at 35 hl/ha and aged in French oak for 12 months. The oak is deftly folded into the fruit profile on the well-defined nose with dark cherries, dark plum and violets. The palate is very intense with elegant, very fine tannins: supple and lithe. It is caressing in the mouth, with impressive volume and fruit intensity on the sorbet-like finish, the black cherry infused with orange sorbet. Drink 2013-2020. (Oct 2012)
