Trumpeter Familia Rutini Red Blend Tupungato Malbec Syrah 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Inky and dense with attractive berry aromas and a touch of cinnamon and sweet spice. A fully, fruity wine, with excellent body, intense tannins, flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and plum intermingled with hints of cardamom and pepper, and a long, full finish.

This is what I'm talking about. $8? Are you kidding me? This kills most $50 California cabs. Big fruit bomb with notes of spicy cinnamon and just gobs of fruit. Like a blackberry pie. Possibly the best QPR I have ever experienced. The label is so unassuming that it can get easily overlooked in a Trader Joe's or another large retailer. This is a steal. Get your hands on as many bottles as you can and drink throughout winter. Gift em, drink em. whatever. Surely the '09 will cost double.

Black fruit and cocoa on the nose, big and jammy on the palate. Medium body and acidity, with soft tannins. Easy drinking.

This wine offers delicious, persistent dark fruit flavors, great balance and smooth tannins on the finish. Malbec is an excellent alternative to Cabernet, and happily is an affordable and ageworthy Bordeaux varietal. You may enjoy the wine by itself, or with a hearty steak or stew. And the price is right!

The wines from Argentina are great in quality and reasonably priced! This one is dark and dense with attractive berry aromas. A full, fruity wine, with excellent body, it has flavors of cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and plum. The wine has hints of sweet spice upon a long lasting finish. Enjoy with char-broiled steaks or BBQ ribs.

Good full red-ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of plum and pepper lifted by spices. A juicy, reserved midweight, with a restrained sweetness to its dark fruit and pepper flavors. Not complex but nicely balanced. Finished with rather fine-grained tannins. The best of the current wines under the trumpeter label, but those listed as "also recommended" are similarly good value.

Very floral and pure, with red plum, cherry, licorice and mocha notes followed by tangy minerality. Drink now.

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.

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.

Soft and composed bouquet, with fruit aromas you will recognize and nothing funky or strained. The mouth is complete and better than ordinary, with pure but simple cassis, blueberry and plum fruit. A hint of oak allows for coffee and mocha to grace the modest finish.
