    Winemaker's Notes:

    Melipal (the Aristi Family) owns three separate vineyards situated in Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina. With total acreage of 188 including 90 year old Malbec. The winemaker is Martin Tosolini, who best understands the potential of Melipal's Malbec grapes. The experience and knowledge of this enologist together with the most precise tending of the vineyards give the character and personality to the wines.

    85% Malbec, 10% Cab. Sauv., 3% Cab. Franc, 2% Merlot

    Big extraction with nose of plums, violets, and ripe fruits. Powerful and intense classic Malbec black fruit, sweet, round, and persistent tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep, dense inky-purple hue. Pretty scents of blueberry, maple and vanillin-laced oak notes. Smooth, clean entry of balanced raspberry that expands to include tobacco and light mineral accents. Well-structured, drying close imbued with cola, blackberry and oak-infused tannins. An exceptional value from 85-year-old vines.

    Lt. ruby color with an oaky, plum nose. Dry raspberry and tart cherry. Long tannic, light oah finish. A very pleasant wine with food.

    Fantastic aroma and color. Full, bold taste that fills your mouth with sensations, then is sucked dry by a smooth finish. Great bold red, but would reserve for a big steak or other hearty red meat. I think it would overpower anything less. 14% ALC maybe a bit overboard, but it is balanced well enough. Well worth the price. Go for it.

    This mellow and supple Malbec is not too sweet and tastes slightly of citrus. It would pair extremely well with grilled fish and other seafood that has solid, but not overpowering, flavor.

    The Wine News 95 score is a significant over-rating of this wine. Strong impression of alcohol, but with a muddiness which undermined the fruit. Did not detect the touted hints of coffee or stawberries. Just mediocre.
