Trapiche Iscay Merlot Malbec 2004

Member Review by dbhonig:

Deep black with bright ruby edges. Berry, cedar and vanilla make a full oaked nose. The palate is strongly oaked, with vanilla and toasted flavors initially overpowering others. The finish is far better than the palate itself, developing slowly to include cocoa, vanilla, bacon fat, coffee and berries. Dry and tart from tannins.

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

Modest plum and black cherry fruit gets a whack of bacony toast. Good, but lacks purity. Drink now. 100,000 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2004 Trapiche Malbec Oak Cask 750ml
