La Posta

Fazzio Vineyard Malbec 2018

There is a rather strong note in the finish that is a little more black than berry. But apart from that, this full bodied wine was very pleasant to drink and complimented a pot roast quite well. — 8 days ago

Mai Mendoza Malbec 2016

I recently picked this up off of Last Bottle. Really nicely developed Malbec. Classic old style Malbec. I imagine the rough edges will smooth out with more time in the bottle. (Not sure why the photo came out with such a squatty bottle). — 20 hours ago

Michel Rolland

Clos de los Siete Malbec Blend 2015

Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, cherries, earth, leather, tobacco, oak, vanilla, cloves, dark coffee, pencil lead, vegetables, spices, metals and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, blackberries, earth, dark chocolates, tobacco, spices, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, coffee and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very enjoyable 5 year old Malbec blend from Argentina by Michel Rolland.

Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Nice to have all by itself or with food. A good sipping wine.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up, and shows some tannins.

Wine Spectator 91 points.

A blend of 58% Malbec, 23% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah and 1% Petit Verdot.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Tamarelli Vineyards

Corte Mendoza Malbec Blend 2014

This Malbec Blend from Mendoza is very enjoyable. Showing black fruits with chocolates, wood, spices, vanilla, vinaigrette, tobacco, peppercorn and espresso.

Dry on the palate with medium plus acidity.

Big bold and extracted.

This 6 year old is good by itself or with food, like a nice piece of steak.

I had it a few months ago and it is starting to decline, so drink up.

A blend of 70% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

The Waxed Bat Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

The wine store told me this was so good so I bought it. It’s okay. A bit too oaky for me but it’s pairing well with charcuterie and sharing with a friend! The Wine Cellar Boynton Beach FL — 10 days ago

Achával-Ferrer

Quimera Malbec Blend 2003

We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.

Nose has dried black cherry, dried tart cherry, dried black currant, slight eucalyptus, dark chocolate, stewed raisin, mashed blackberry, faint chalkboard dust and dried rose.

Palate has sweet prune, semi-dried black cherry, sweet-roasted red pepper, dried boysenberry, briar and dry earth. Honestly, somewhat reminiscent of an Amarone-style. Medium long finish is satisfying.

Decanted ~60 minutes. In an aged, but happy spot today, certainly ready to drink, but could likely make a 20th birthday in proper storage.

Unfined & Unfiltered, this bottle threw the most amount of sediment I can recall of any bottle we've ever opened, even in comparison to older Port or Zinfandel.

40% Malbec / 28% Cabernet Sauvignon / 27% Merlot / 5% Cabernet Franc (4,976 cases)

@Eric S It's going to happen at some point, lots of Spanish bottles came up, that Numanthia is also '03, an expected big wine.
