Gimenez Riili Malbec 2008
The Gimenez Riili Family has had a tradition in viticulture since 1945, when Don Pedro Gimenez chose Mendoza to realize his dreams and harvest the best grapes. It was him who passed on his passion for wine to his son Eduardo. In the third generation, Pablo, Federico, And Juan Manuel complete their grandfather's wisdom and father's experience with innovation and character. A traditional past, a thriving present and a promising future.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
This time I found it (newly opened) to have some beautiful violet and other florals on the nose over crushed red fruits. Very appealing nose. The palate is a nice blend of red berries, black berries, some hints of spice, leather and sweet tobacco, but the florals make a welcome appearance. It's well integrated and balanced. Nice!
