Trapiche Malbec Broquel 2007
Has intense, deep red-violet color, and ruby hues, showing the concentration of the grapes. The wine shows aromas of black fruit jam and liqueur, with notes of vanilla, chocolate and smoke. On the palate, it is ample and rich, with a long finish and soft tannins. Food Match: Roasts, red meat, Hard cheeses, grilled vegetables, grilled meats, fowl, beef, BBQ.
Liked this wine very much. Nose: spicey, meaty Palette: red berries, good acid
87 points. On the nose this wine has a good amount of layering complexity. There is an interesting, very dark, minerality, combined with ripe jammy fruit and a faint herbal greenness. There are tones of rosemary and bramble fruit, mixed in with coffee beans and volcanic stone, creating an aroma that is both powerful and refined at the same time. The palate opens on cherry juice, a bit of cracked black pepper and some softer plum tones. There is also an earthiness to the mid palate that shows some suede and rosemary with a bit of burnt sugar. The finish takes this a step further and evolves into something that I can only describe as tasting like S’mores, with a little bit of burnt marshmallow, some chocolate, and the baked quality of a graham cracker. This is an interesting wine, and it has a flavor profile all its own. There is a very nice balance to this wine, and its fruit and mineral tones come together quite well. It has a good amount of intensity, and it is smooth and rich, despite the fact that the acidity is slightly sharp around the edges. This is a well made wine, and I think it would be a solid introduction into Malbec if you were new to the grape.

The more Malbec I try, the more I want to try. This was nice.
We found this wine to be delicious after allowing it to sit in the glass for at least 15 minutes. It definitely needs time to open up, so either let it sit in your glass before drinking or decant. After opening up, this wonderful Argentinian malbec was as good as any malbec we have tasted, expressing its unique taste and velvety texture. A definite must try!
Inky texture, eminently drinkable. Not especially complex or unique though full-bodied. Soothing.

Intense purple red color with ruby hues. Aromas ofblack fruit jam and liqueur, with an elegant touch ofsmoke, vanilla and chocolate. Sweet attack and fullbodiedtannins. Long and pleasant finish.
The red wines begin with the Broquel Malbec which spent 15 months in new French and American oak. Purple-colored, the nose offers up pain grille, mineral, spice box, blueberry, and black cherry notes. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered, spicy wine with excellent grip and depth, several years of aging potential, and a long, pure finish. It is a fine example of over-delivering at a humble price."
