Trapiche Malbec Broquel 2010
Dark dark purple. Aromas of plum, spice and heat on the nose. Flavours of plum, blackberry, leather and anise. High on heat and low on tannins. Not a bad Malbec.
External Reviews for Trapiche Malbec Broquel
Reintönige, sortentypische Aromen, von süsslicher Frucht und von verführerischen Gewürzen (Zimt, Vanille). In der Nase vielschichtig und intensiv. Gradlinige, fruchtige Struktur und kräftige, gehaltvolle Textur, langanhaltendes Finale.
Saturated and pitch black to look at, and not much different in scent. This is a fully extracted, modern Bonarda that's well made and generous. Full-bodied wine lovers should like the meaty, dark berry and cocoa flavors. Tannic but layered on the finish. - M.S. Ripe, offering fresh blueberry, kirsch and cassis flavors backed by juicy acidity and light tannins, as the finish unfolds with mocha, savory licorice and spice notes. Drink now through 2017. 9,000 cases imported. -NW The 2010 Broquel Malbec is fermented in 70% concrete and 30% stainless steel and then aged in 70% French oak for 14 months. It has a light but well-defined nose of dark cherry and cassis fruit with a smear of creamy oak. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy, chunky black fruit and a clean, pleasing finish of blackberry and strawberry laced with prudent oak to lend some lift. This is a fine, well-priced Malbec. Drink now-2014. ** SOLD OUT **
