Mora Negra Valle de Pedernal 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

70% Malbec, 30% Bonarda Fairly vanilla oaky on the nose but also nicely rosemary stemmy with intriguing herb notes helping to add complexity to the plummy and candied black cherry fruits of the nose. This is very broad on entry, and shows attractive transparency on the palate with modest tannins and well integrated acidity supporting fresh plummy fruit. There’s a nuance of chocolaty oak here but it’s really very well integrated, and while the tannins build on the palate they remain within the rich if simple fruit. The finish is a bit subtle and shows good persistence to the dried herb, mineral and older wood flavors that help to carry a kernel of red cherry fruit right through to the finale. Rather juicy and perhaps a touch simple but also quite satisfying on a hedonistic level without crossing the fruit bomb line. 90pts

Hot, sharp, with dark chocolate and cranberries. Eucalyptus as well, with some mild notes of chili pepper. The fruits and tannins are nicely balanced on the body, with chocolate more prominent in the finish. Enjoyed a lot - nearly polished off a whole bottle.
