Malbec

Bodega Catena Zapata

Catena Alta Malbec 2008

The 3rd and final wine for the weekend in the World Rugby Series - this one a Malbec from Argentina. Dark Crimson in colour - opaque with signs of age on the rim. Aromas of Tobacco. Quite a juicy palate - medium minus weight. Restrained - classed as new world but made like old world. Fine grained Tannins. Thoroughly enjoyable - loved it. I have a new appreciation of Argentinian Malbec. After 2 hours in the decanter a light tarry aspect with a touch of pastille. Amazing how much better Argie Malbec is compared to its spiritual home in Cahors France. Probably the altitude in the Andes has a lot to do with it. — 8 days ago

Napa Valley Malbec 2014

Dark, inky, peppery, just a touch of dried herbs, and delicious - not a jam dark mocha bomb that can be typical of Malbec. Their wine has a Bordeaux undertone to them, which is refreshing. — 10 days ago

Alta Collection Mendoza Malbec 2015

Tapiz Alta Collection Malbec 2015 from Mendoza Argentina. 13.9 %alc. finally a Malbec that I like. Aged 12 months in oak barrels. Color is dark. Bouquet is blackberry blossoms in bloom. The initial palate is blackberry, cherry, and raspberry on the end. The mid palate develops the spice and more tartness from the raspberry. The finish is mildly dry with an oaky after taste. VERY NICE. — 5 days ago

Northridge Vineyard Malbec 2011

Great nose, full bodied with a long finish. Stone, slate & granite minerals tickle the tongue. Paired with shrimp & sausage Jambalaya and a spinach salad.
Walla Walla! Great Monday wine.

Estaba buscando un vino para compartir con unos amigos, "calidad precio" y apareció este Malbec de Chile que me llamo la atención, chorizos, chuletas, pechugas de pollo, salchicha blanca, ensaladas, acompañaron la charla, un vino que lo encuentras en todas partes y siempre cae bien, excelente acompañamiento, saludos #10añosdeamoralPisco #pisco #winelovers #wine #vino #pasionporlacata

A.P. Birks Clare Valley Malbec 2005

Intensity is the word
Not so focused yet maybe, but a lot going on
The fruit is a dark cherry, almost a plum
Violet, jasmine
Stewed chestnuts, soy sauce, ink, black pepper. Eucalyptus too, but not overwhelming at all
Semi dried tomatoes and oregano 😱😱
Mouth is still tight, on the hard side; tannin is there and the freshness too. Enjoyable, but if I find another bottle we could wait easily another ten years. Super long finish.
Altogether, it’s a YES🤙🏻

Viña Unica Malbec 2013

I had a 2011 and contrary to anothers rater think this is one of the best I had tried. I am a wine lover and have had thousand of them from different countries. This wine has a fruity and oaky taste you will notice its 18 months in barrels for that low price of 400 arg pesos equivalent to 10 dollars — 7 days ago
