Maipe Malbec 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose reveals dried plum and dark fruits, exotic spices, with hints of violet and chocolate. Round and fleshy, with enticing crushed plum and boysenberry fruit enlivened by a liquorice snap note. Fresh acidity lies buried on the medium-weight, juicy finish.

Shared this with Bob & Joyce. It had a long dry finish that allowed it to be sipped all evening as we discussed recent and upcoming events.

I liked this wine a lot. Smelled of dark fruit on the nose. Fruit forward, supple mouth feel. this is a real bargain

This has a soft nose. The flavor profile is very fruity with blackberry and plum as prominent notes. There is also smoke, black pepper and a bitter cocoa finish.

The 2007 vintage is my favorite malbec so far.

The 2008 Malbec is a glass-coating purple color with a striking perfume of violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Exhibiting surprising complexity for its price category, the wine has gobs of fruit, savory flavors, and excellent depth and length. It is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 3ndash;4 years.

This Malbec has a deep purple color with violet tints, complex plum, fig and floral aromas, rounded tannins and excellent length with a distinguished character. Excellent when paired with game, roasted red meats or pasta.

Maipe wines are surefire bargains for both reds and whites. The rsquo;08 Malbec is robust, spicy and deep, with hearty black and red fruit, anise, black pepper and smoke. Great buy for California Cab drinkers mdash; makes a terrific pairing with steaks, braised pork or hearty vegetable dishes.

Offers dark fig and berry fruit backed by coffee and dark chocolate notes. The ripe, fleshy finish is solid, if a bit squared off. Drink now through 2008.

The purple-colored 2007 Maipe Malbec is soft, forward, tasty, and easy to understand. Drink it over the next three years.

Forward and direct, with plum and violet notes and a clean, easy finish.

Suave and silky, flavorful and elegant. Crafted from an old Bordeaux grape that is rarely used in its native France, but which now flourishes in Argentina, the wine is loaded with dark berry and chocolate notes, yet tempered by supple tannins. It is rare to see a wine so inexpensive boast so much finesse mdash; truly a wonderful value.
