Michel Torino Malbec Don David Reserve 2007
This wine comes from the Bodega El Esteco winery in the Salta province of Argentina. The winery was created in 1892 under the name Michel Torino Bros La Rosa Wineries. In 1994, it was sold to Félix Lávaque, a winemaker who in turn sold it to a Swiss group that gave the company the image it has today: a premium winemaker. This Malbec has concentrated aromas of red fruit, spices and toasted notes from the oak. The wine is rich and complex and has a very long and attractive aftertaste due to its round and full ripe tannins. This wine would be ideal with spicy meat dishes.
A crummy year in Mendoza was not so bad in Salta, at least not in these mile-high vineyards. The sweet mix of pancake syrup and raspberry jam in the bouquet comes without too much depth but a very agreeable blend of prune, green plum and mixed berries, then a clean finish.

medium body, strong sense of vanilla on the nose, has a moderate toasted aroma. quite high in sourness, will go good with food instead of drinking alone.

External Reviews for Michel Torino Malbec Don David Reserve
Deeply colored; spice box, plum, and black cherry aromas; layered and succulent, lengthy.
Red-ruby. Black cherry candy, currant and licorice on the nose. Juicy dark fruit flavors come across as a bit tanky today but nonetheless easy to drink, with good juicy acidity giving the wine a light touch. This relies more on its acidity than on its tannins for structure.
Smooth and consistent Malbec from Cafayate is what Michel Torino is all about. Don David is a higher-aiming effort, and while it shows a touch of northern Argentina's herbal, sun-affected characteristics, it's also a well-balanced, formulaic Malbec that hits all the markers: good color, nice body, friendly tannins and plenty of oak.
Starts with rubbery, intense aromas, but with breathing it settles on earthy berry fruit and oak-driven coffee. The mouthfeel is good and shows nice lemony acids, while the flavors vascillate between tangy/floral and herbal blackberry. Sweet, concentrated and rich on the finish, with a lasting wave of mocha.
Seventy percent of the 2005 Malbec "Don David" was aged for 12 months in French and American oak. It is dark ruby/purple in color with aromas of cedar, tobacco, leather, black cherry and blackberry. It has excellent depth, richness, and length. Already offering some complexity, the wine will evolve for several more years and drink well through 2020.
The 2007 Don David Malbec was aged in French and American oak for 12 months. It reveals notes of cedar, spice box, mineral, black cherry and black raspberry in its excellent nose. On the palate it offers elegance, spicy flavors, excellent balance and a lengthy finish. It is a very good value.
