Rutini Wines "Trumpeter" Malbec Mendoza Argentina 2008

Member Review by Slipstream:

Initial sourness in the aroma opens up to bring in tannin and other scents. Fairly tangy for the variety, but with some light sweetness and woody complexity. Good.

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

Aromas of cinnamon and berries lead into flavors ofcherry, blackberry, and plum intermingled with hints of ginger and pepper. A rich, creamy wine with intense deep tannins, a touch of vanilla toast and a long, full finish.
