Tamarí Malbec Reserva 2008
Intense and deep red garnet. Floral, fruity, intense, honest. Flowery notes of violets and jasmine, ripe red fruits, like plums, cherries and chocolate morello cherry. Aging in oak barrels adds complexity, and notes of hazelnuts, almonds, cinnamon. Very good attack, good acidity, nice and delicate. It is a wine of medium body, long and tasty. The fruit in the mouth recalls notes of plums, caramel, toffee. Very interesting tannins, tasty, sucrose and long. A ripe fruit aftertaste and very good persistence are emphasized.

External Reviews for Tamarí Malbec Reserva
It is very fruity, concentrated and complete, with sweet ripe tannins and a persistent and elegant finish that invites you to drink more wine.
Coming from the mountains of Mendoza, Argentina, this beautifully crafted Malbec exudes personality both on the nose and in the mouth. Tamari means "to do everything with passion" in the dialect of the indigenous people from the local area. How true is it of what comes out of this bottle! On the nose, you will find candied cherry, a hint of summer ripened figs, plum and definite vanilla. In the mouth, the craftsmanship shows off in flavors of cherry and vanilla bean with some spice. The tannins are well-rounded and smooth with an elegant finish. I just loved this wine on its own! A must try!
Ruby-red. Dark berries and spicy oak on the nose. Supple and pliant, with accessible flavors of dark berries, spices, licorice and nuts. Finishes with dusty tannins and a building minty element.
The color is a rich, inky, deep red hue. It has a very pleasant nose of cherries, sweet plums, with notes of cinnamon, vanilla, and a hint of black pepper. It was rich and spicy, with a nice silky mouth feel.
Smooth and lifted, with bold berry aromas backed by strong lemony oak. Plum and boysenberry form a solid foundation, and off that you get texture and chocolate. Tight, tannic and with far more good qualities than bad.
Lots of tangy, bright red and dark berry fruit, along with racy floral and game notes. Nice mouthfeel and judicious toast as well. Drink now through 2006.
Competent from the start, with well-formed fruity aromas of raspberry and plum. Thereandrsquo;s even some leather and dried cheese to the nose. In the mouth, itandrsquo;s all about earthy, intense berry fruit and juicy freshness. Finishes a little tart but lively, with good form and feel.
