Malbec Blend

Carmel Winery

Admon Vineyard Malbec 2014

This is a very tasty Single Vineyard Malbec from Israel. Drinking very nicely now. Spicy and rich. Showing nice complexity at this point.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with wood, earth, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Soft finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

Drinks like a 10 year old Bordeaux mixed in with a Napa Cabernet.

This 6 year old is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Delicious once it opens up. Peaking now and will be good in the next few years.

A very enjoyable wine even by itself. I've had it before, and this time I gave it 3 hours to open up properly in a decanter. Very drinkable so watch out.

15% alcohol by volume. Kosher.

92 points.

Tito Parahe Altamira Valle de Uco Malbec Blend 2015

Wow. This wine evolved into a tremendous grand finally. Dark concentrated fruit perfumed with violet and lavender. Slight sweetness in the background integrated with spiciness gave it a soothing finish — 11 days ago

This is by Pedro parra, the soil guy. I’ve been curious about his wines, this one sounds very cool

Bonarda is underrated from a simple pleasure and “goes well with lots of different foods” perspective.

Meritage Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday. Here is a tasty one from Virginia.

Dark ruby in color with a nice reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, currants, bing cherries, honeysuckle, light oak, red candy, spices, dark coffee, vanilla, dark chocolates, light vegetables and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and pretty legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, sweet strawberries, black currants, light wood, spices, black pepper, earth, bitter herbs and tobacco leaf.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very interesting wine from Virginia. A nice Bordeaux blend that warrants food, although pretty nice by itself too. Tangy and soft, with a nice mouthfeel and mild complexity.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly, but so much nicer after 90 minutes in a decanter, when it really comes together.

Could be mistaken for a California Bordeaux blend, except for the honeysuckle nose, that i usually find in wines from the Southeast of the US.

Nice and engaging with lively acidity and a tangy finish.

Would be nice to see how it ages in the next 5 years.

I enjoyed it with Brie cheese.

A blend of 41% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 23% petit verdot, and 4% Malbec.

13.6% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

High Mountain Vines Mendoza Malbec 2017

My wife purchased this and in her words, "this greatly exceeded expectations!". At $16, this is a steal. Silky smooth black fruit, leather mint, and lavender on the palate. This reminded that I should not forget about drinking more malbecs. James Suckling rated this 93pts...while I think that is a bit high, it is very good and definitely recommend! — 8 days ago
