Winemaker's Notes:

Farbe: Rubinrot Reintönige, sortentypische Aromen, von süsslicher Frucht und von verführerischen Gewürzen (Zimt, Vanille) strömen aus dem Glas. Der Sinneseindruck in der Nase ist vielschichtig und intensiv. Dieser Broquel der Qualitätsstufe Reserva ist von grosser Dichte und zeigt viele Dimensionen. Eine gradlinige, fruchtige Struktur und die kräftige, gehaltvolle Textur, die mit Stoff und Schmelz zu überzeugen weiss, entfalten sich im Gaumen.

The Trapiche team was immensely proud to receive the Trophy for the "Argentinian Wine Producer of the Year 2006", awarded by a jury of wine experts on October 31st in London. When the IWSC, one of the most prestigious wine competitions in the world, created the trophy for "Argentinian wine producer of the year" in 2004, Trapiche was the first winery ever to receive it. The trophy was created because of the growing importance of the Argentina category within the industry; P&O Nedlloyd Logistics is the official sponsor. History repeats itself. Being awarded the trophy again is the proof that Trapiche is paving the way in Argentina´s wine industry, both in terms of quality and innovation. The winner is designated on the basis of its general performance at the IWSC 2006 and Trapiche won the only Gold Medal for an Argentinian wine with Medalla 2003. According to the competition officials, "Each year, the International Wine and Spirit Competition commends the achievements of those members of the wine and spirit trade who make an outstanding contribution to the industry. These individuals or companies set the standards of excellence for the rest of the industry to follow and influence the quality, variety, value, and educational information available to the wine and spirit consumer." Undoubtedly this trophy consolidates Trapiche´s leadership in the Argentinian wine industry. Read less

In a blind varietal tasting i would be hard pressed to discern that this wine is a Malbec. The Broquel is deep and rich in color. This wine is elegant and balanced.

This was medium to full bodied, fairly dry (but not overly-so). It requires a bit of time to decant, otherwise the flavors are too spicy and oaky (read: will kind of burn your palate). After about 15-30 minutes of 'breathing' time the flavor calmed down and was actually quite lovely; the fruity components came through but retained a mild spice, just a hint of oak. Very smooth with a long finish. Next bottle I buy I'll probably let it age for a year or two before opening.

Great color, and I enjoyed the black cherry and plum flavors and spicy finish. This is easy drinking and at a good price point.

This is a very good example of what a malbec can be. If you like malbecs you will like this wine. It is more refined than many other malbecs in this price range and the tannins have been well rounded by the hot Argentina summer. This wine is a very dark purple hue with, spicy notes and a nice finish.

    Very typical of Arngentenian Malbec. Makes a decent porch wine to drink while snacking on some sharp cheddar and pistachios

    For several vintages running Broquel has nudged the border between very good and excellent, but as in years past the '06 is a touch tangy and racy, with black cherry, plum and berry flavors. It's bold, zippy and quite high-toned, but still it's very ... Wine Enthusiast. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2006 Trapiche Broquel, Malbec 750ml

    Farbe: Rubinrot Reintönige, sortentypische Aromen, von süsslicher Frucht und von verführerischen Gewürzen (Zimt, Vanille) strömen aus dem Glas. Der Sinneseindruck in der Nase ist vielschichtig und intensiv. Dieser Broquel der Qualitätsstufe Reserva ist von grosser Dichte und zeigt viele Dimensionen. Eine gradlinige, fruchtige Struktur und die kräftige, gehaltvolle Textur, die mit Stoff und Schmelz zu überzeugen weiss, entfalten sich im Gaumen.

    Wine Tasting NotesIntense, deep red-violet color, almost black, showing the concentration and quality of the fruit's origins. Very aromatic wine with a good balance of depth and strength. On the nose, one notes dark fruits and jam with an elegant hint of smoke, vanilla and chocolate; on the palate it is ample, rich with a long finish with delicate, soft tannins.
