This stained my lips and teeth so purple that when I was giving my daughter a bath she asked me why lips were brown. Besides that wonderful anecdote, there isn't much to say here. Hard to tell it apart from all of the other Mendoza malbecs, which is not a bad thing. Mendoza malbecs are delicioso.

A dark, chewy style, with thickly layered iron, black currant and smoky toast notes that wind their way to a brawny finish. Plenty of stuffing, but not for fans of the elegant style. Best from 2007 through 2009.

Ripe and juicy, with a solid core of raspberry and boysenberry fruit layered with sweet toast and vanilla notes. Drink now through 2008.

Yet again this relatively affordable wine shows the charms and potential of Argentinean Malbec. It has a beautiful color and full, fruity aromas. The palate runs a bit sappy and upright, with cherry-based fruit that will go great with any type of grilled or braised meat. Clean, ripe and tasty, with the slightest bit of perky acids.

Fine core of raspberry and blackberry, with ample structure as well. Good mineral, toast, briar and meat hints underneath. Shows more muscle but stays nicely balanced through the finish. Drink now through 2007.

The purple-colored 2006 Malbec was sourced from a 65-year-old vineyard and aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak. The nose emits scents of cedar, tobacco, blueberry, and black raspberry leading to a firm, slightly muted wine. The flavors are savory and it has good grip but the finish is slightly compact. Another two years of bottle age may round it out, but it should be consumed over the near term.

Ripe blackberry and black currant fruit, along with cocoa, loam and spice notes. Fleshy, structured finish lets the fruit stretch out. Very solid. Drink now through 2006.

Dense but forward, with layers of raspberry and boysenberry fruit pushed by melted licorice and fruitcake notes on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Rutini Malbec has a concentrated nose with elements of wild berries, tobacco and vanilla. The palate is full, with rich black fruit flavors and a long, lingering finish with a touch of black pepper spice.
