Val de Flores Malbec 2005

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2005 Malbec is more evolved and broader on the palate than its younger sibling as well as smoother in texture. However it does not have as much aging potential although it is a powerful effort by any measure. It should be at its best from 2012 to 2023. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Inky dark purple fades to a translucent rim. The bouquet is powerful with ripe black berry blueberry vanilla mocha oak herbs and earth. It opens with an exceptionally smooth texture and creamy mouth feel. This full-bodied beauty lasts on the palate for minutes after each pleasurable sip. Grilled meat would be fantastic alongside this full layered magnificent malbec. Roland Hankerson.

With 48 hours in the recorked bottle this showed an almost liqueur-like quality but with an enticing floral topnote. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
