Trapiche Broquel Malbec 2011 Mendoza, Argentina

image

My Rating 88 Points. 
Price $15.

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim (still).

What a great nose on this 5 year old Malbec, of blackberries, vanilla, coke, blueberries, figs, raisins, licorice, chocolate, coffee, leather, light alcohol and peppercorn.

Full-bodied, bold, velvety and smooth with long legs and medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blueberries, blackberries, cherries, cloves, cedar, vanilla, licorice, chocolate, espresso, dark chocolates, spices and lots of black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and peppercorn.

This wine aged beautifully. Balanced and smooth, with complexity and nuances that were not there only a couple of years ago.

Probably at its peak right now, so drink up.

The grapes were hand picked, and aged in oak barrels for 15 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
