Inky black-purple, not much nose; slight oak notes, berries, mild to mod. Tannins, low acid, mod. Long finish. Not bad, but not much going on either. Read more

Initial impression: solid chocolate and plum nose. Nice burgundy coloring. Light tannins, flavors of plum and cherry, though I had to resort to the back of the bottle to identify the cherry. Very lightly lingers on the tongue for several minutes. Nice.

Appearance: Clear, opaque purple, paler rims with legs Nose: Clean, showing developing and medium intensity aromas of violet, raspberry, sweet spice, plum and smoke. Palate: Dry with medium acidity. Medium tannin which is ripe and fine-grained. Medium plus alcohol level and medium plus body, with medium plus intensity flavors of raspberry, smoke, oak, violet, sweet spice and plum. A smooth and soft texture with a well-defined fruit. Medium plus length. Conclusion: Very good quality, with a complex and intense aroma, flavors and also a good length. The wine is balanced and with a smooth finish. The silky tannin and smooth texture makes the wine very enjoyable. This wine is ready to drink but can be further developed for another 2-3 years.

This wine has some nice flavor profiles, but was just not smooth enough or big enough for me to rate it higher than (3). It's almost a (3.5).

This malbec has an intense ruby red color with violet tones. It has aromas of ripe fruit with a hint of pepper. Sweet, fresh and full in the mouth, followed by soft, gentle tannins. A lively wine with good acidity, juicy red fruits and fine minerals.

Winemaker's Notes:

Located in Mendoza (Argentina’s most important and presitigious growing area), Trapiche is simultaneously a historic and thoroughly modern winery. The hand-harvested grapes for the Malbec Oak Cask are sourced from the best parcels in Trapiche’s high-altitude Finca 1883 and Finca Las Palmas vineyards. Before bottling, the wine is aged in French and American barrels for 12 months, endowing the Malbec with a graceful, integrated touch of oak. Very Good. Best value. Memorable black-tar nose, with some charred wood. Rich, black wine with good minerals. Fresh and lively despite its weight, with big, bright fruit.
