Zuccardi Malbec Malamado 2012

Member Review by chriscage:

Clear, strawberry colors with hints of cherry juice in color. Aromas of jellied grape, rich dark fruits like plum, black cherry, raisin, and undertones of alcohol, black currant and licorice! The flavors follow very closely with added notes of vanilla bean, maple/butterscotch and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is sweet, smooth and left to air for about 10 minutes, this becomes very silky indeed. Highly drinkable in all seasons, and best with a chocolate dessert...try this with an oreo cookie! This should be on fine wine lists everywhere!

The use of the latest available technology is present throughout the whole process. From the outset harvesters use 6kg plastic trays that protect the grapes and facilitate the harvest, and as the wine making process advances, so does the complexity of the technology involved. Stainless steel tanks, cooling and maceration machines, pneumatic presses and rotating tanks constitute just a few examples of our state-of-the-art infrastructure. Read less

Intense plum, fig, raisin, and with a notable woody, nutty, spicy quality. It almost reminds me of fruit-cake covered in brandy (a true English Christmas dessert)! Wonderfully complex, finishes long, and doesn’t overwhelm with its level of sweetness leaving you wanting more! The last time you had a Port (or Fortified wine) was….well…..I’m sure most of you can’t even remember! If I had to guess, it was probably around the holiday season. Fortified wines / Port’s just don’t seem to get a lot of exposure, and often get forgotten about even when thinking about dessert wines. Admittedly it’s fairly tough to drink these types of wines in the middle of summer; but with the weather starting to cool you have no excuse! The Malamado is definitely something you should consider!
