Château de Grézels

Prestige Cahors Malbec Merlot 2019

First-rate QPR #cahors #malbec #merlot (70%/30%) blend. Nose considerably fruitier than the previous vintages I’ve found at #costco which were 100% Malbec. The merlot brings ripe bramble fruit on the nose followed by earthy undertones. Succulent acidity on the palate right up front, black berries following with some dark chocolate, forest floor, leather notes. Hearty tannins linger on the finish and build with each sip. QPR is way up there for under $9. — a year ago

Ramey Wine Cellars

Claret Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Ramey’s interpretation of #claret is quite interesting. After 9 years of bottle time it’s aged more than expected. Stewed plum, quite faint dark fruit on the nose. Prominent acidity on palate, primary fruit exited stage left, some sherry notes but still noticeable tannins. 68% #cabernetsauvignon, 18% #merlot, 6% #syrah, 4% #malbec, 4% #petitverdot — 4 months ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

It’s great to see the historic and influential Robert Mondavi Winery return to excellence. Napa Bordeaux blend with 85% #cabernetsauvignon 6% #cabernetfranc 6% #petitverdot 2% #malbec 1% #merlot. This wine shines with generous decanting. Elegant, memorable ripe bramble fruit and black plum, sweet baking spices on the nose. Juicy tartness underlays a bold wave of fruit on the palate with silken tannins on the finish. I definitely plan on laying down my other bottle for at least half a decade. #oakville — 10 months ago

Bodega Cicchitti

Edición Limitada Malbec 2012

Lovely mushroom emerges within a lovely and gracefully aged malbec showing appropriate raisination. Tulip, violet, hibiscus and rosemary-beef; bllackberry and cocoa, cracked pepper. Dense coloration just brimming on brick. Concentrated plum and cinnamon collide with tobacco, cedar and savory as well as slightly sour cherry and roobios.

Nice Winery

Reserve Malbec 2018

Reserve #mendoza #malbec with plenty of personality. Bramble fruit, cassis, faint tobacco and vanilla hints on nose. Taut acidity up front on palate, medium plus body, fruit more shy than the nose would suggest, peppery spice, then leather tobacco progress to grippy tannins on the finish. Those tannins and acidity suggest this wine could easily evolve 5 years or more in the cellar. Brilliant glass paired with Wagyu steak sandwich with chimichurri sauce. — a year ago

Pizzorno

Winemaker Private Selection Canelones Malbec Marselan

Interesting #uruguay red blend from #canelones region. A few days after uncorking it’s evolved nicely. Substantial black/purple bramble fruit aromas up front followed by an understated earthy, leather character and some mushroom notes. Plump acidity on palate, less fruit and more coffee, licorice finished by rounded tannins. 70% #malbec 30% #marselan - interesting wine found from a friend at a South American grill restaurant. — a year ago
