Rutini Red Blend la Consulta Cabernet Malbec 2004

Member Review by bobborn55:

2003 vintage is superb. Full bodied but silky smooth, with a flavorful bouquet. Perfect with red meats, but also an excellent complement to chocolate as dessert. Pity it's not available in the USA. Bring back a case if you're in Argentina. Purchased in 2005 in Buenos Aires for US$15.65

Rutini is a winery in the Maipu Valley in Mendoza, Argentina. It was founded in the late 19th century by Italian winemaker Felipe Rutini, originally called La Rural, with the motto Labor et Perseverantia (“Labor and Perseverence.”) Eventually the winery expanded into Los Corralitos and Medrano. Upon his passing in 1915, his descendants continued the operation, producing fine Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Chenin Blanc. In 1925, Rutini was the first winery to plant in the as yet unchartered Topungato region, recognizing its excellent viticultural possibilities for its climate and elevation. In 1994, Rutini was acquired by Argentinian winemaking icons Nicolas Catena and Jose Benegas Lynch, who have elevated the winery to become one of the region’s top quality producers. Principal winemaker is Mariano Di Paola, who oversees production at the state of the art facilities.  Read less

Five glasses



<p>From the most visited winery in Argentina, this deep red, almost purple wine is peppery on the palate with full fruit flavors and nice sweet tannins.</p>
