Editorial Reviews for Trapiche Malbec
Buttered toast and black cherry jam on the nose with a little bit of a mace like spice top note. Soft yet fairly juicy, this is likeably mid-weight with good intensity to the black cherry/black raspberry fruit. The oak is well judged here, adding just a hint of spice to the palate. A bit of a lightweight in Malbec land but likeably so, and nicely dry especially on the finish which is a touch short. 84pts
Very earthy and jammy nose, the body is dry and has moderate tannins. Very enjoyable, goes well w/ a plain burger.
You know, for an inexpensive Malbec this is a pretty great value. Definitely fruity and food-friendly. Bit of a toasty kick. Would be good as a party wine for casual sipping.
Fruity and round with a little vegetal note. Tastes great with carrot cake!
Not quite as enthusiastic about Trpiche but not a bad Malbec, just not great.
Nose is smooth with roasted vanilla and cherry. Very light and smooth on the palette. Not particularly dry. Dark ruby red colour. A hint of cigarette ash. Not a memorable wine, but drinkable one.
Food Pairings for Trapiche Malbec
Deep red in color with intense aromas of red berries and liquorice. Its sweetness surprises the mouth displaying soft tannins and its aging in oak brings up memories of fruit and vanilla.
