Wendouree Malbec 1991

Magnum
I've always wanted to taste an old malbec from them
Still embarrassingly young and fresh
Kaleidoscopic nose
Hard to describe mouthful
We start with eucalyptus, then berries of any kind, from raspberry to blueberries or blackcurrant
Leather, cinnamon, star anise, soya, graphite, gunpowder, coriander, curry
Neverending
Intensity, vibrancy and length
I honestly am so bloody curious to see this in decades
I keep thinking of Bordeaux when I drink Wendouree maybe cause they freeze the time
It starts the hunt for more

Concreto Mendoza Malbec 2015

1st of 3 Mendoza Malbecs for NYT Wine School. Uco Valley, high altitudes, calcarean soil, fermented in concrete eggs. Medium/deep purple, blackberry and mint on the nose. Blackberry, plum, boysenberry, mint, pepper, and minerals on the palate. Needed a lot of time to open up. Some alcohol burn. It’s good and well made but doesn’t change my overall impression that Malbecs are kind of boring. — 24 days ago

Terroir Series Finca Ambrosia Single Vineyard Malbec 2014

Deliciously smooth Malbec. Deep red colour highlighted by blackberry, liquorice, vanilla and finishes with mocha notes on the palette. Could even pick up subtle stewed tomatoes. Good expression of a Uco Valley Malbec. Medium tannins, a good length. Delicious find! — a day ago

Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara County Malbec 2017

This is a very tasty Malbec from Santa Barbara County.

Deep purple in color.

Fruit forward and dry with medium acidity and a tangy finish.

Showing black fruits with chocolates, oak, light vanilla, vegetables, tobacco, spices and peppercorn. Tasty and interesting.

Easy drinking and spicy.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Napa Valley Malbec 2014

Deep garnet, almost purple, hue. Dense and dark. Some noticeable extraction. Toasted caramel, vanilla, black and red fruit, saddle leather, sage and vegetal notes on the nose. Fresh and fragrant. Nicely balanced on the palate. #napamalbec #malbecmalbec #merryvale #merryvalevineyards — 2 days ago

Kettle Valley

Malbec 2011

To be honest, the Malbec seems to be the least consistent of Kettle Valley's expressions. I find the variation wild between vintages of this stuff. The 2011 eight years after vintage has some graphite going on with perhaps some under-ripeness of fruit making an appearance, but the brambly blackberry fruit quickly gives way to a wave of blueberry here that works ok with the heavy dose of wood. It's weird to say, but would you say this is missing a tar note? — 6 days ago

Isenhower Cellars

Á Bloc Malbec 2015

Dense purple red, highly extracted pigment, some sediment in suspension. Butter, purple fruit and flowers in nose, blackberry, thyme, sage, slight cigar box. Velvety blackberry texture and flavor in mouth, slightly bitter and alcoholic on finish initially. After 30 minutes, chewy tar finish emerges with moderate astringency and a touch of menthol. A serious robust wine, but that Washington State fruit flavors and herbal nose sneak through. 106 cases produced — 6 days ago
