Falling Star Malbec Cuyo 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Caramel and cigar wrapper greets the nose over a mild base of blackberry/black currant fruit. Light , bright and juicy in the mouth with some rather stiff tannins but enough cranberry and plummy fruit to keep things in balance. There’s a woodiness here, more sweet and vanilla than spicy but it too is in its place. Finishes cleanly if a tad drying. Needs food but perfectly acceptable. 83pts

The Trapiche team was immensely proud to receive the Trophy for the "Argentinian Wine Producer of the Year 2006", awarded by a jury of wine experts on October 31st in London. When the IWSC, one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world, created the trophy for "Argentinian wine producer of the year" in 2004, Trapiche was the first winery ever to receive it. The trophy was created because of the growing importance of the Argentina category within the industry; P&O Nedlloyd Logistics is the official sponsor. History repeats itself. Being awarded the trophy again is the proof that Trapiche is paving the way in Argentina´s wine industry, both in terms of quality and innovation. The winner is designated on the basis of its general performance at the IWSC 2006 and Trapiche won the only Gold Medal for an Argentinian wine with Medalla 2003. According to the competition officials, "Each year, the International Wine and Spirit Competition commends the achievements of those members of the wine and spirit trade who make an outstanding contribution to the industry. These individuals or companies set the standards of excellence for the rest of the industry to follow and influence the quality, variety, value, and educational information available to the wine and spirit consumer." Undoubtedly this trophy consolidates Trapiche´s leadership in the Argentinian wine industry. Read less

We had a box of this in the office. Perfectly nice aroma, simple wood notes with forward cherry in the mouth. Kind of a hot finish. It's pretty good for such a cheap wine.

This Malbec shows loads of spicy black fruits, with hints of tobacco. Juicy on the palate, this is an easy-to-drink, ripe Malbec to enjoy now. - Winery
