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.
Blueberry, dark fruit, earth, spice, soft tannins, creamy mouthfeel. Great value.
External Reviews for Maipe Malbec
An intense nose of crushed blackberries and spicy vanilla leads to juicy blueberry decadence on the palate. Waves of stewed ripe plums intermingle with cocoa powder and a subtle, cleansing acidity. The finish is long and concentrated, with more vanilla spice and silky tannin.
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.
The purple-colored 2007 Maipe Malbec is soft, forward, tasty, and easy to understand. Drink it over the next three years.
My three favorite Maipe red wines include the 2009 Malbec Reserve, the winery's top selection that is aged in wood for 12 months. A dense blue/purple color is followed by a big, sweet, floral (acacias), blueberry, blackberry, coffee, and white chocol... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2009 Maipe Malbec Reserve 750ml
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.
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.
