The 2010 Oak Cask Malbec has an intense red color with violet hints. The wine shows sweet aromas of blackberry and plum with a touch of black pepper, an elegant touch of smoke and vanilla comes from the oak aging. There is a velevety texture, soft tannins and long finish.
The 2010 Oak Cask Malbec is a candidate for best bargain in my Argentina tastings. Aged for 9 months in French and American oak, this purple-colored effort displays an alluring nose of cedar, spice box, lavender, and black cherry. In the glass it displays succulent fruit, good depth, and a pure, lengthy finish. It over-delivers in a very big way and could easily pass for a wine costing 3-4 times as much. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
Smoke, rubber and spice aromas mix with ripe berry scents to form a solid and impressive bouquet. It's thick and saturated but balanced, with harmonious, easy to like flavors of blackberry and cassis. Long and solid on the finish; captures the essence of value-priced Malbec.
