Not a bad little wine for the price. The nose is more along the lines of red fruits: cherry, raspberry, a little plum. Lacking a bit in the dark fruit category. The front is nicely fruity, but it dies in the mid-palate, recovering a bit in a decent finish.
Two and a half glasses

Evident red fruit on the palate but a little astringent and rather persistent tannins, not bad but it would benefit from a tiny addition of Shiraz/Cabernet to full the flavour whole in the back... it needs food or some strong cheese
Especialmente recomendable para comer carne argentina. Specially recommended for argentinian meat.
as an argentinian, and specialist in food and beverages, I agree with comments on this malbec. I would rather blned it with a cabernet. For Syrah lovers, don't look for blends, if you get at your location, try the Luigi Bosca Reserva Syrah, specially combined with lamb, deer, wild duck,
External Reviews for Trumpeter Familia Rutini Malbec
The 2011 Trumpeter Malbec sees three to six months aging in used French oak. It has a fresh blackberry and raspberry-scented bouquet, while the herbaceous palate is chunky and a little brusque, but is at least fresh and clean. Personally, I prefer the Cruz Alta Malbec! Drink now.
This solid, medium-bodied red features hints of spice and tobacco to the cherry and dark plum notes, as medium-grade tannins frame the finish. Drink now.
Aromas of cinnamon and berries lead into flavors ofcherry, blackberry, and plum intermingled with hints of ginger and pepper. A rich, creamy wine with intense deep tannins, a touch of vanilla toast and a long, full finish.
Floral aromas lead the show, backed by meatiness, minerality and wild sage and thyme aromas. The palate is fresh and young, with edgy but saturated plum and raspberry flavors. Turns more narrow and simple with time, but for a basic Malbec it more than gets the job done.
Floral and juicy, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit backed by bright acidity, modest tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.
Ripe and juicy, with pretty spicecake, coffee and cocoa notes, and a healthy dose of blackberry fruit. Sweet, smoky finish. Very tasty. Drink now through 2004.
Heavily extracted, with roasted aromas of charred wood, beef and coconut. The mouth pushes bold cherry, blackberry and plum flavors, while the finish is slick yet tangy. This wine shows bulk around the edges but its leaner and more acidic in its center. Solid for everyday action, assuming you like yours big.
