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
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 2010 Malbec is a nicely concentrated, spicy wine with plenty of black cherry flavor. It will make for excellent drinking over the next 3andndash;4 years.

Forward and direct, with plum and violet notes and a clean, easy finish.
Another yummy red from the Maipe winery. This darkly colored Malbec exhibts the grape'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.
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.
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 - truly a wonderful value.
