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

A nice red to serve slightly chilled with summer barbecue! This smells very fruity and ripe with notes of prune, plum and dark cherry with a bit of smoky oak. In the mouth this is very easy with soft tannins and a gentle sweetness coming from the spicy oak. The fruit is fresher than the nose would suggest, bright and with very soft tannins, it's a bit of a fruit bomb, with a touch of brambly spice offering a touch of complexity. 84pts

My Rating 83: Well balanced nose with some complexity. Taste a little dry and astringent with little complexity. I paid only $ 3.- ( on Sale!!). For that money it is a fantastic bargain.

A dark, winey style, with slightly rigid structure supporting the dark linzer torte, boysenberry and plum fruit. A toasty edge holds sway on the slightly stolid finish. Drink now. 58,000 cases made. -JM

Die fruchtigen Aromen von reifen Pflaumen und Kirschen passen zu den blumigen, würzigen Duftnoten. Im Gaumen überzeugt er durch seine Fruchtigkeit, Harmonie und durch seinen dichten Körper. Der Abgang widerspiegelt die positiven Eindrücke und führt sie in einer schönen Harmonie zusammen.

Die intensive, typische Aromatik von reifen Pflaumen und Kirschen sowie die feinen Gewürznoten in der Nase sind vielversprechend. Die Frucht und die samtigen Gerbstoffe halten sich im Gaumen die Balance und überzeugen. Der Abgang widerspiegelt die positiven Eindrücke und führt sie in einer schönen Harmonie zusammen.

This Malbec shows loads of spicy black fruits, with hints of tobacco. Juicy on the palate, this is an easy-to-drink, ripe Malbec to enjoy now. - Winery
