Gaucho Spur Espuela del Gaucho 2008

Member Review by Athon:

Very dark pigment, typical of Malbec. Soft nose, violet and tropical hothouse (not unpleasant) aroma. Very soft mouthfeel, slightly tannic finish. Very approachable wine, leaning more towards a New World Cab than a Malbec...which is too bad, as the typicity on Malbec's is part of their appeal. Overall an enjoyable wine, but if you are looking for Malbec's unique character you will be disappointed.

black cherry/blackberry, chocolate, not too earthy... a great value, but hard to find on the east coast.

Like GAUCHO SPUR quite a bit. Dark inky pigment. Smooth and soft. Long Finish. Slight tannic taste.

I received this as a gift. It was quite a surprise. Nice. punchy although soft with a slight "yum" funk. Heh. Good bottle.

Nothing spectacular, but you can't get mad at it for this price.
