Best Malbec I’ve ever had. Everything about this epitomizes Malbec. Inky and dark even at 13yrs old! Clove, menthol, black licorice, cocoa dusted bay leaf, and even some blackberry pie. Very pure. Awesome bottle. — 4 days ago

@Shay A In my pre-Delectable posting days, we've had this bottle (Lote 3 version), 2002 with close to the same bottle age as your bottle, good stuff.

Full throttled. THIS is S American Malbec. Purple and thick black fruit notes. Muddy. Compared to the other two SVD malbecs that I had from this year, I think this one outdid the others quite easily. I don't think I was expecting this one to show as well as it did. A couple of friends, one who really likes Malbec showed up a couple of hours after most of everyone else and figured I would open up a 'decent' Malbec for him.... Boy was I surprised! Yet I feel that, even at 13 years post vintage this one is still developing and could probably go another five to seven years without really even thinking about it. Completely blown away.

9.0

A deeply colored Malbec-based blend from northern Argentina with licorice aromas complicated by notes of coffee and bitter chocolate. Suave and easygoing, with definition and mineral lift, and a touch of medicinal reserve to its creamy dark raspberry fruit. Sweet, ripe tannins dust the palate.

Costco, $11

Beautiful dark ruby color with tons of fruit/jammy flavors. A bit acidic, but still quite smooth. I love how flavorful it is, wish it was just a tad less acidic, but still really good.

Grand Vin Cahors Malbec 2014

Recently rebranded as La Roche Mère this is the most prestigious of the three wines from this property

Earthy violet, hints of chocolate and cedar. Great length and balance - this has a refinement you don't find in Argentine malbec
Exceptionally smooth tannins with enough acidity to compliment most dishes on the table. There is oak on the nose and palate but it is held in check, adding to the wine's complexity

Excellent Malbec! Seems to be a decent seller at 2 of the wine stores I shop at....will buy again. A little pricey at $18, but it's got the level of character and flavor for the money. — 13 days ago

A decent mid-range Chilean malbec, rich and tasty, as it should be. More on bitter than on sweet side for a typical malbec. Not cheap though. — 7 days ago

Reserve Malbec 2017

Very light and smooth finish to a wine. Not a traditional Malbec, finishes more like a cab sav than a Malbec. — 2 days ago
