Graffigna Grand Reserve Malbec Malbec San Juan 2007
Sweet Indian spices come across in the nose, and the sweetness endures in the mouth albeit with a slightly chalky texture; a decent finish but not much structure, not bad considering the less-than-stellar vintage. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=511)
Not bad. Prefer malbecs from Mendoza though. Not the best finish
Generous malbec, envy-inducing red tone with a dark core. On the nose: mature, black fruit fields forever. The 14% and round tannins support a strong and persistent finish. Pepper n spices presence pairs very well with tacos de carne asada and grilled puerco adobado. Salud !

Another winner from an award-winning producer! Perfect for Cab drinkers, this red is robust, with deep black currant and cassis flavors highlighted by rich, red raspberry notes. Smooth, dry finish.
"Very aromatic presenting the typical plum aromas combined with smoke with chocolate notes
This wine has a beautiful, deep violet color and coats the palate with chocolate-covered cherry and creamy vanilla nuances.
WA 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: Deep purple color; black cherry, Asian spices, lavender aromas; concentrated, spicy, lengthy. Winemaker Notes - Displays an intense and deep ruby red color, with traces of violet. A very aromatic nose presents the variety's typical plum aromas, combined with smoke and chocolate notes, a result of the oak and bottle ageing. On the palate, rich and sensual, well structured and perfectly balanced.
