Finishing up our trip and last night in Buenos Aires with a dinner tango show.

We had to go with Rutini again tonight as the wine/bottle that came with dinner reminded us of what our parents used to drink. The choices to purchase wine were also very limited but, the show fantastic!

The 2015 Rutini Cabernet-Malbec blend the night before was better than the 2015 Rutini 100% Malbec tonight.

On the nose, perfumed dark red & blue florals. The fruits are candied in style. Dark cherries, blackberries, blue fruit hues, black raspberries and raspberries & strawberries on the edges of the glass. Mocha, caramel, cinnamon, loamy dry soil & clay, dark moist soils, soft leather notes & light, soft spice.

On the palate, the body is medium. The tannins are round & dusty. Ripe; dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, blue fruit hues, cherries & strawberries. Berry fruit cola, vanilla, light caramel & mocha, dry crushed rock powder, dry stones, soft leather, underbrush, bright red florals & violets, good round acidity and a round, balanced fruit and earth finish.

Despite being quite young, it shows a surprising roundness and smoothness. Persisting flavors and aromas.

29.50€ at Steakhouse in Mönchengladbach. One of the cheapest, but not bat at all. Very dark red.

Huelo un pie de frutillas, con mucha manteca y algo ácido. Muy Bueno.

Vinified on 80% new French oak and 20% new American oak for 12 months, the 2012 Rutini Malbec offers classic high-altitude notes of blueberries and black raspberries, along with a subtle top note of Madagascar vanilla. On the palate, abundantly bright acidity, and an intriguing slightly salty, slightly herbal countenance that shows mostly on a finish well-endowed with black pepper, bay leaf and sweet tobacco.

15.5/20 (86/100) Аромат чёрных ягод, ваниль и легкий овощной тон. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью. Во вкусе чувствуется некоторая незрелость.
