Trumpeter Familia Rutini Red Blend Tupungato Malbec Syrah 2011

Member Review by aronowm2:

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.

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. - Winery

Floral and juicy, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit backed by bright acidity, modest tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.

Juicy raspberry, blackberry and fig flavors are backed by well-integrated toast on the medium-weight finish. Drink now.

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

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.
