Food Pairings for Graffigna Malbec
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Here is yet another example of how numerous wineries outside of Mendoza are crafting sophisticated yet uncomplicated wines meant to be contemplated and enjoyed. A beautiful San Juan Malbec that is concentrated, with great spice and red fruit depth. Forest berry and red currant flavors balance out the spice layers. 50% of the wine was aged in oak and the other 50% without. As a result, both the oak and the abv levels are reasonable and they never become an obstacle to the Malbec's expression. A very enjoyable, versatile wine that shows the type of restraint evident much more so in smaller producers from Europe. I'm not too sure that the export markets will embrace this understated, refined style, though I would love to see more producers from new world production zones taking this approach.
This wine has a deep red color with violet highlights. The aroma is complex and smokey with hints of dark berries, black pepper tobacco and wild herbs. In the mouth there are flavors like plum, currant and coffee with subtle notes of vanilla and toast. The finish is slightly sweet with a mineral edge and smooth tannins.
