Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: rich purple with blue-violet hues. Nose: immediate suggestion of violets and aromatic tobacco combined with hints of plums and blackberries against a sustained but elegant backdrop of oak. On the palate: rich and round entry, intense impression of plums, cherries, sour cherries and blackberries; great structure and complexity from tannins that are ripe and perfectly balanced; the aftertaste is intriguing and long lasting.

Typical dark dense Malbec color but not opaque. Very floral apon opening, very attractively so at that with melon, berry, toast and mineral notes competing and eventually winning out as the floral notes fade. Round and medium bodied in the mouth with bright acids but that doesn’t prevent this from being a bit dull on the palate. Finishes with a lack of concentration and non-descript flavors. Average at best 83pts

aromas of vanilla and currants and then very herbal and filled with dark fruit on the palate, very rustic and earthy for a Malbec.

On the outset, I'm a huge fan of the depth and complementary aspects one can find in wines made from single varieties farmed at differing altitudes. This one seemed promising immediately before uncorking, as a 50/50 Malbec blend from such distinctive micro-climates (Tupungato and Barrancas) would seem like a real winner. Well, it would have been...if the fruit and spice were not completely ruined by NEW oak. NEW OAK? What an absolute shame, and an amateur mistake to flounder on. I'm rarely put off by this winery's work, so this comes as a great surprise. Was this "death by oak" thing done to bottles just destined for US and UK markets? Not sure. Just who (Rolland, etc) could one be listening to, in the process of taking perfectly decent wines and castrating them of their character, after blending, and made into something that is so rough, smoky, unbalanced and certainly not charming in the least. More like a wine for someone with a "smoker's palate." Sad, sad, sad. Hopefully this isn't being carried out for other Flichman wines.

Excellent, dry but not tongue wrenching. Need more - tasted 10/29/2011 Rated 91 - 45% Shiraz, 30% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon; complex aromatics, mouth-filling, will evolve. - Robert Parker

My favorite "bargain" malbec. I have found this vintage year for malbecs is generally very good regardless of price.

[2007] This will remind you of a lingering name of a friend you cannot remember. You will know those were happy days, but you just can't place where you met or who is it. Your first encounter is simple enough, almost typical, but there are great moments in that memory, and they persist. That's the character of this wine, it is a simple spark, minute hints of spice and fruity flavors, so deceptively simple but it lasts more than you thought it will.

It was alright. I wouldn't buy it again, but would drink it if a friend served it.

A blend of Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, this full-bodied red is loaded with aromas of blackberry, peppermint and black pepper. Dark fruit, oak and a touch of chocolate are present on the palate followed by good acidity and firm tannins. The blend is only produced in the best vintages and pairs beautifully with red meats and tuna steaks.
