Schroeder Estate

Family Vineyards Malbec 2014

Nothing terribly interesting about this #patagonia #malbec, fruit-forward and a touch too sweet, dark cocoa on the finish, light tannins without texture or interest. It would be nice with steak but keep looking if you want something more robust and complex.

"1837" Barossa Shiraz 2016

Here’s a big Australian #barossa #malbec that’s surely a crowd pleaser being quite concentrated, but it’s too jammy for me, missing acid for balance and depth of flavors. — 8 months ago

Familia Zuccardi

Salpicado Mendoza Malbec Bonarda 2017

It’s strangely fascinating when you’re used to nice wines to drink a bad quality wine. This #malbec was advertised to serve chilled, but that’s clearly to hide the flabby, uncouth taste. These are not the droids you are looking for. Move along... — 10 months ago

Gascon Mendoza Malbec 2017

Pretty uninteresting #mendoza #malbec - just flat without much depth. Perhaps it’s a mellow wine crowd pleaser but not my thing. — 3 months ago

Château Les Hauts d'Aglan

Cahors Malbec 2010

Haven’t tasted in three years. The mineral component has become more defined and pervasive: powderized rocks and black iron. Bitter almond, prunes and blackstrap. And still no stinking Merlot. #cahors #malbec — 5 months ago

Milamore Red Blend 2015

Vinho muito doido. O dono da loja chegou a ficar triste quando eu falei que ia levar esse aqui. Ele queria pra ele (:
Primeiro vinho com
#driedgrapes secas naturalmente. O #malbec deixa o gosto de frutas vermelhas bem puxado. Encorpadaço e mais alcoólico, faz com que o gosto e cheiro de uvas secas fique bem forte. Lembra quase um #porto. Na faixa dos $20.

Château de Haute-Serre

Cuvée Icône Cahors Malbec 2011

Immaculate aromas of rich tobacco, raspberry reduction and purest blackberry with sweet cedar and Madagascar vanilla, with violets, roses, and mint. Black currant, blackberry, graphite, concentrated forest notes of pinecone, bramble, baker’s chocolate, licorice, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, cedar, Jamaican tobaccos, dried violets, Roobios, and iron minerality. #chateauhauteserre #icone #cahors #frenchwinescholar #frenchred #malbec #swfrance — 4 months ago


Torrontes 2017

Delightful off-dry #malbec #rosé, exact color of watermelon Jolly Ranchers. This one can be served ice cold. I like a drier style usually but this one is nice to drink outside on a muggy Houston evening. — 8 months ago
