Graffigna Malbec Reserve Centenario 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Graffigna Malbec Reserve Centenario 2012 is a deep red in color and offers complex layers of dark berry, black pepper and toasted aromas on the nose. On the palate, well-integrated tannins with round mouthfeel, velvet texture and a long, lingering finish. Pairs well with grilled beef, lamb or duck."Good medium ruby. Classic malbec aromas of blackberry and licorice lifted by a violet topnote. Juicy and dry, with a firm acid/tannin spine giving shape and lift to the currant, plum and spicy oak flavors. The persistent finish shows a lightly saline quality and repeating spicy oak." -International Wine Cellar

  Graffigna, with a winemaking tradition that spans 140 years, has the honor of being the oldest winery in the Argentine province of San Juan, the second oldest in the country and the first winery in Argentina to sell branded wines. Today, Graffigna is one of Pernod Ricard's four global wine brands and iconic of Argentina's progress as a quality wine producer. In recent years, as part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, Graffigna launched a viticulture study and development process in San Juan with the support of an international team of experts led by Victor Marcantoni and with the consultancy of renowned winemaker Phil Laffer. An ambitious investment plan was also deployed. In order to increase production and storage capacity, cutting-edge agricultural technology, equipment and production techniques were incorporated.   In 2009, Graffigna was named "Winery of the Year" in the USA by The Critics Challenge and Graffigna Centenario became the most awarded Malbec of 2007-2008. Moreover, in 2010, Graffigna's Malbecs (Grand Reserve and Centenario) were awarded with 90 points by acclaimed critic Robert Parker. Today, Graffigna continues to consistently embrace innovation without relinquishing its rich history and tradition. Read less

Last of the Flight, and though I liked it a bit less than the other two, was still quite good. I struggled trying to determine the smoke note, because it was pronounced enough for a 'wow, what is that???'. The Cru description notes that it is 'mesquite and espresso' and funny, that is exactly what it was...great bottle.
