I would not drink this again. Tastes more like a Cahors Malbec than an Argentinian one. Very earthy and dirty. Not what I am looking for in my Argentinian Malbecs.

My Rating 83( 86) : Well two ratings! overall based on the funky smell I give it only an 83. Taken away the smell it might get a 86 rating. This smell is not a corked smell but a more barnyard like spunky smell. Taste is balanced and very dry. Price $ 8.99 at Costco / Orlando. Would not buy again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A fairly typical Malbec with a wonderful deep color. Be warned that it has a tendency to quickly dry out the mouth and leave a strange aftertaste that's not displeasing, but certainly isn't wanted. Otherwise, the plum aromas on the nose are one of the best a Malbec can give while smokey and oak flavors at the start of tasting give it an elegant flavor overall.

Choose this at a dinner theater event after server mentioned special pricing. What a surprise! Great nose and taste. Will look for in local stores.

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

The 2008 Graffigna Grand Reserve Malbec is deep violet red with purple hues. It is very aromatic, with typical plum notes combined with chocolate and toasted notes from the oak aging. This is an ideal companion for lamb, grilled beef, ragouts, poultry or wild birds.

Opaque purple; spice box, incense, lavender, and black fruit aromas; underlying structure.

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.

This wine has a beautiful, deep violet color and coats the palate with chocolate-covered cherry and creamy vanilla nuances.

The winery was founded in 1879 by Santiago Graffigna. The Centenario is dark garnet with purple edges and flavors of dust, plum, blueberry, cranberry, cherry and a hint of milk chocolate. Zesty and juicy with bright acidity, good weight and depth, soft tannins, it has a smooth, creamy finish. Serve it with lamb chops, grilled bratwurst or Calabrese sausage and garbanzo soup.
