High Note Malbec 2008

Member Review by Philip James:

Fantastic for the price! Notes of blackberries, tar and licorice. Very rich, sweet and fruity, the wine is bursting with blackberry, blueberry and prune fruit. Young, slightly tart towards the end. Finishes on bramble notes with cedar and the dusty drying effect of the tannins. Excellent for $10.

One of the best wines at a sub-15 dollar price point. Still very young and has a lot of potential to age.

It has concentrated desert sunlight, very cool nightly temperatures, and dry sandy soil provide the fruit with long hang times and concentrated flavors without excessive sugar.The result is High Notes luminous violet color and with passionate, sweet spice on the palate balanced by notes of plums, cassis, blackberries, and black cherries. It is creamy, silky, and seasoned in the mouth with soft, round tannins and a long silky finish.

Concentrated flavors of cassis, ripe red cherries and mocha give way to hints of black pepper and spicy vanilla. Soft, round tannins create a smooth, creamy texture leading to a lengthy finish.
