Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Malbec is the grape variety that put Argentinian wine on the map. From grapes grown at the foothills of the Andes Mountains at an altitude of 3,000 feet above sea level, this wine's deep purple color and complex plum, fig and floral aromas are the expression of the soils and sun that gave it birth. Rounded tannins and excellent length with a distinguished character make for a memorable experience. An excellent wine to pair with game, roasted red meats or pasta.
External Reviews for Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon
Fresh and open, with cherry, plum and roasted vanilla notes and a medium-weight finish. Drink now.
Argentinian reds are produced to be consumed young while still vibrant; Maipe has produced a Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the essence of bright fruit and spice and characterizes this delicious style. Bright fruit, vanilla, and black cherry round out this exceptionally earthy effort.
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from 35-year-old vines, is a saturated purple color. The nose offers up pure black currants and blackberry with some earth notes in the background. The wine is slightly austere on the palate but is likely to round out with another year or two in the bottle (not that anyone is likely to cellar this tasty effort). It is a lot of wine for the money.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a straightforward, uncomplicated wine that will provide a modicum of enjoyment over the next 2andndash;3 years.
