Fabre Montmayou Malbec Patagonia Barrel Selection 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

88 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and licorice scents complicated by a musky leathery element. Silky, dense and sweet, with flavors of dark berries, smoked meat and chocolate lifted by nicely integrated acidity. Finishes with a repeating note of dark chocolate. Packed with fruit, and a very good value. (Jan/Feb 2010)
