very nice wine. great for food pairing. (most malbecs are dry and harsh.) this is a single vineyard. not many out there!

I'm just not feeling the love on this wine. Its not that its that bad, it just doesn't live up to other similarly priced Malbecs from Argentina. It has the lovely appearance as promised by the winemaker of a deep red violet but that's where the label fulfillment stops. I get a lot more alcohol than fruit on the nose, though I did get some hints of berries, earth and pepper, but only after swirly my glass ferociously and frequently. On the palette the alcohol subdues a bit to allow more earth, dark plums and cherry fruit and pepper to come through. But that classic depth of a good Argentine Malbec just wasn't coming through. Pairing the wine with a piece of aged beef prepared rare on the grill brought much more flavor alive with some sweet spices of cinnamon and nutmeg being added to deeper earth covered dark fruit. So for that I gave it an extra 1/2 glass. I really think the problem here is just too much alcohol for the fruit. The longer the wine sits in the glass, and some of that alcohol evaporates, the more fruit and flavor starts to come through. If some one else has had a better experience (not a retailer trying to sell this to me please) I would like to hear about it. Other wines from the producer are a better bet.

Though I wouldn’t often spend this much on a Malbec, after tasting this wine there really is no way to say no. Beautiful complexity, full fruit, pepper and spice, silky mouthfeel and well-integrated oak notes make the price seem more than okay. Buy this in place of your favorite Napa Cab or Brunello. Food pairing: red meats Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: full Finish: rich

Sweet tannins blend with oak to provide lots of complexity and a velvety texture on this tasty gem from Mendoza, Argentina. Excellent with grilled meats...even burgers!

The 2008 Malbec Old Vine Finca Montuiri (100%) also spent 16 months in 70% new French oak. Coffee/mocha, exotic spices, incense, and black cherry are just some of the elements composing the wine’s captivating bouquet. In the glass it reveals full body, succulent fruit, excellent volume and length, and layers of flavor. Give it another 2–3 years to fill out and drink it from 2013 to 2020+.

Intense red violet color. Blackberry, plums and boysenberry with sweet toast aromas. Spice and mineral notes combine with ripe dark fruit resulting in a beautifully balanced wine. Fresh acidity keeps it mouthwateringly fresh. Sweet tannins blended with oak provide complexity and a velvety and a long lasting finish.
