Bodega El Esteco

Don David Reserve Malbec 2018

I don’t drink many purple wines these days in fact if any, but this was a gift from a colleague & supervisee so I felt a certain obligation. Not a bad one: new oak obvious, still has some lift and floral notes through that blueberry/ blueberry pie palate. You could do a lot worse, and Frederick Wildman thought enough of it to import. Still, caveat is that not my taste but some may be wild over it ( a 92 from J Suckling?! My lord, he does score high). — 14 days ago

Yeah, JS is generous IMO.

I do appreciate his enthusiasm but his scores are predictably 2-3 above others. There does seem to be a strategy (colluding/identifying with wine makers?) but not sure what it is.....@Severn Goodwin

Côte Fruité Malbec 2017

Expression of Malbec "on the fruit" Glu-glu wine. Friendly and approachable. All the characteristics of the grape varieties are expressed here without artifice with a nice know-how. A sort of Beaujolais in darker and more condensed! "Nature" spirit attested by a light sparkling mouth when opening, testifying to a very low sulphite intake. To drink with simple meals, charcuterie boards / mezze cheese, antipasti. Treat!

L’expression parfaite du Malbec « on the fruit » gourmand. Amical et accessible; Toutes les caractéristiques du cépages sont ici exprimées sans artifice avec un beau savoir faire. Une sorte de Beaujolais en plus noir et plus condensé! Esprit « nature » attesté par une bouche perlante à l’ouverture, témoignant d’un apport très réduit en sulphite. A boire avec des repas simples, planches de charcuterie/fromage mezze, antipastis.

Mendoza Station

Mendoza Malbec 2019

Color of deep ruby with bright purple hue. Nose of vinegar, burning sensation in the nose, leather, sweet cherry jam, and a bit crayon. Taste of subtle acidity, low soft tannins, savory spice, ripe grapes and subtle sweetness. Aftertaste of some more sweet, peppery, and spicy sensation. On par. — 14 days ago

Bodega Sur de los Andes

Mendoza Malbec 2014

Wonderful Malbec!
This wine was on sale for less than $7; I bought a case and got an extra extra discount. Yay!!
lighter notes on the nose, jammie blackberry on the tongue; some but not overbearing tannins. Wishing I bought two cases - this bold but delicious wine would pair with so many flavors and incredibly affordable!

Château du Cèdre (Verhaeghe et Fils)

Le Cèdre Cahors Malbec 2015

Sour cherry, violet, spices, wow what a nose! The palate is magic. A very strong acid backbone that goes for ever. Great width with a soft touch on the sides but a nice matter with a bit of weight. A radiant sour cherry all along and then, in mid palate, magic 😮. Grainy tannins which leave a layer all over an expanding finish with cherry and a touch of bitterness. This is great. It got an hour decant. — 11 days ago

Prieuré de Cénac

Cahors Malbec 2016

Methinks 2016 was a good year for this #cahors Château. Inky purple color in the glass. Allow for an hour to open up and take the edge of the tannins; then the nose opens up with black bramble fruit, cassis, slight baking spices, vanilla, molasses and yet still that classic Cahors earth / mushrooms. On the palate it continues that dark fruit, medium pleasing acidity plus coffee finishing with some muscular tannins and a long finish. It might be a touch hot at 14.5% ABV, but not egregiously so. A Château-bottled red from the ancestral home of #malbec for $7 at Costco. Lamb chops or a porterhouse would be a stellar pairing. — 5 days ago
