Silky cinnamon, allspice, violets and black cherry, this Malbec offers savory flavors and promises complexity with age.
The 2010 Reserve Malbec is aged entirely in new American and French oak, 80% and 20% respectively. It has a lifted bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry and wild hedgerow that is clean and pure, but if I am truly honest, it does not have the razor-sharp clarity of the Malbec 2011. The palate is medium-bodied, rounded and smooth with crisp acidity. There are lovely rounded blueberry and dark plum flavors defining the sensual finish, but it requires a little more edginess and tension. This is a fine Malbec, although I would have preferred less new oak.
