Gascon Malbec 2008

Member Review by Athon:

Dark pigment, typical Malbec. Leather nose, oak (American?), spice, dark berry fruit, smoke (this may be from my BBQ). Indeterminate fruit, not much going on in the mouth. Furry tannins. Hit of alcohol on the back. Lingering finish, but long aftertaste in the mouth, kind of an annoying coating. Nothing special, nor disappointing here, but it and you will get your monies worth. $11.99

Gascon Wine:
Don Miguel Gascón wines reflect Argentina’s rich winemaking history, capturing the true expression of the country’s most renowned grape, Malbec. Our high altitude vineyards in the famed Mendoza region produce Malbec grapes with extraordinary color, body, aroma and structure. The result is an elegant Malbec with concentrated flavors and exceptional balance.

This is a malbec that I see most often in groceries. It's a pretty good buy for the price and convenience. I love malbec wine, and this is a good selection for some areas short on variety.

Dark cherry nose. Good amount of ripe dry cherry fruit on the palate. The acidity dominates a bit too much on the back end and seems a little forced. After the acidity there's some leather and smoke at the outset. Not bad for the price.

Enjoyed this nice Malbec with a juicy steak. Very intense dark berry on the nose. Velvety smooth on the palate.
