Maipe Malbec 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.
Another very nice vintage from Maipe, they are easily one of the go to Malbecs
External Reviews for Maipe Malbec
Maipe wines are surefire bargains for both reds and whites. The '08 Malbec is robust, spicy and deep, with hearty black and red fruit, anise, black pepper and smoke. Great buy for California Cab drinkers - makes a terrific pairing with steaks, braised pork or hearty vegetable dishes.
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 purple-colored 2007 Maipe Malbec is soft, forward, tasty, and easy to understand. Drink it over the next three years.
The 2010 Malbec is a nicely concentrated, spicy wine with plenty of black cherry flavor. It will make for excellent drinking over the next 3–4 years.

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