Maipe Malbec 2009
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.
Blueberry, dark fruit, earth, spice, soft tannins, creamy mouthfeel. Great value.
External Reviews for Maipe Malbec
Dark ruby red, violets, plum, and black cherry aromas and flavors; sweetly-fruited, tasty effort.
My three favorite Maipe red wines include the 2009 Malbec Reserve, the wineryandrsquo;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 chocolate-scented bouquet. Remarkably rich and heady, with a full-bodied mouthfeel as well as silky tannins, it should be consumed over the next 2andndash;3 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.
The purple-colored 2007 Maipe Malbec is soft, forward, tasty, and easy to understand. Drink it over the next three years.
Another yummy red from the Maipe winery. This darkly colored Malbec exhibts the grapersquo;s telltale blueberry aromas and hint of earth on the nose. Medium-full bodied on the palate with a silky mouthfeel extending concentrated gobs of blackberry and blueberry fruits through to a well-balanced finish. Great deal.
