Gascon Reserve Malbec 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

By selecting grapes from vineyards at varying elevations throughout Mendoza’s high valleys, our winemakers achieve superb balance in the finished wine. The high altitude places the vineyards under intense sunlight, which translates into fruit with extraordinary flavor and aromatic expressions.

My wife and I just got back from a couple of days in Washington, D.C. where I had bought a bottle. Prior to this, I had bought an earlier vintage and enjoyed it, therefore, I thought I would give the 2009 a try. Wanting a quick dinner, we had stopped to get a steak, salad fixings and twice baked potatoes. The steak was pan fried in a cast iron pan to medium rare, served with a sauce reduced with port and fresh morel mushrooms that had I picked a half hour prior. The lettuce salad with grilled asparagus and a parmesan dressing completed the meal. The wine was perfect, smooth and delicious with a nice after taste. No super tuscan here but a delicate red. I would grade it a 90 min. My wife gave it a 92, and she has a better palate than I.

Blueberry, vanilla, toasted oak, with a very nice lingering blackberry finish. Soft tannins. If I didn't have the bottle in front of me, I would have sworn this was Petit Syrah. None of the brighter fruits I associated with other Malbec.

This wine is made by blending Malbec from the three best growing areas in the Mendoza provence. In these areas, the grapes develop sweet tannins, intense fruit and good acidity/sugar balance, combining the characteristics of each area. Red purple color. Intense black fruits and red plum aromas. Smooth and concentrated tannins in the mouth.

One of our more exciting recent finds, this incredibly lush, purple-hued red wine from Argentina is so ripe and round that it is nearly impossible not to gulp it down. A great wine for peppery steaks and chops, or rich Mediterranean fare.
