Food Pairings for Red Rock Winery Malbec California Reserve
Editorial Reviews for Red Rock Winery Malbec California Reserve
Shy and very tight on the nose with nice black cherry, plum vanilla, and bacon notes topped with a hint of maple syrup. Medium full bodied though this is nicely transparent with a fine bed of supportive tannins and layers of maple syrup, ripe herb, and vanilla tones over the core of black, plummy fruit. This finishes with decent length though the wood tones take the upper hand here and lead to a nice, slightly sweetened cigarbox note on the finale. 85pts
Dusty cherry aromas and bright red fruit. A little thin towards the end but it lasts long and has some extra cocoa and a little menthol towards the finish.
Big fruit here on the nose and in the mouth with a hint of cedar. Classic dark fruit with just enough bite!
fruity and a bit vegetal, cauliflower? not a fan.
Loved it! Just a bit smoother and fruitier than their merlot.
I can imagine enjoying this wine in a dark jazz club. Smokey texture with a woody after-effect.
Really tastes woody and smokey. I'm a big fan of this wine!
External Reviews for Red Rock Winery Malbec California Reserve
Although it was historically grown as a blending grape in the Bordeaux region of France, it has seen recent popularity as a single‐varietal wine out of Argentina. Malbec, a thin‐skinned grape, thrives with the abundance of sun and warm, dry weather offered in some growing climates in California. Like France, California has traditionally used Malbec as a blending grape but opportunities to showcase this full‐bodied varietal are increasing. Malbec is characterized by its deep purple color, smooth tannins, and ripe fruit flavors. - Winery
Soft and sleek, with modest blueberry, rosemary and spice notes. Drink now.
Slightly more interesting, the 2009 Malbec exhibits darker berries along with hints of earth, cocoa and spice box. Medium-bodied and riper than the Merlot, it is a blend of 76% Malbec, 8% Syrah and the rest Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. It should be consumed over the next 2ndash;3 years.
