High Note Malbec Elevated Malbec Vista del Sur 2007

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

87 points. This wine’s aroma has an impressive amount of complexity to it. It’s smoky and dark, with an intense earthiness and a somewhat spicy edge. There are some grilled aromas and I pick up on quite a bit of pepper, there are some chocolate covered cherry and kitchen spice aromas lingering somewhere in the darkness as well. It opens velvety smooth, with subtle red berry and rich plum tones. There is a spiced quality to this wine, almost something like fruitcake, which gives way to pepper, grilled meat, and volcanic stone. The finish has a nearly burnt quality to it, and there are some very dark foresty tones as well. This is a powerful wine, it’s almost like a storm that rages onto your palate and leaves everything black. It’s got pretty nice balance and its quite smooth for the power it’s packing. For the price, this is a great example of Malbec’s dark side, and a wine worth trying.
