Bodegas Trapiche Oak Cast Malbec 2012 Mendoza, Argentina 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $10. 
Dark inky in color with a purplish rim.

Light barnyard on the nose with black currants, cherry pie, smoke, coffee, blackberries, plums, oak, licorice, vanilla, spices, alcohol, earth, green pepper and black pepper.

Full bodied with a nice mouthfeel, medium acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, ripe cherries, black currants, oak, chocolates, vanilla, vegetables, mocha, cloves, earth, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm, yet elegant tannins, and tart cherries.

A nice Malbec from Mendoza. Well balanced with nice fruits and acidity to make it interesting. Yummy by itself, but also great with a piece of steak.

Needs a couple of hours to open up, but drinking well right out of the bottle too. Even better at this low price point.

14% alcohol by volume.

  1. Thanks for the review. You always post very nice and complete reviews. I can almost taste the wines. I continually wonder where you find such a large variety of wines to taste? You must have the largest wine cellar in the world. 🙂

  2. Have you seen a kosher Malbec from Argentina? We had it at someone’s table, and loved it, and it was just as complex as you are describing this one, but as it was Shabbatm I didn’t get any information other than country of origin.

  3. Right you are! And btw, my husband, who is making kosher cigars – there is such a thing! – wanted me to ask if you would know and/or recommend specific wines to go with specific kinds of cigars, i.e. milder, stronger, etc. My opinion is good cognac, but nobody is listening!
