Mendoza Vineyards Malbec Gran Reserva 2010

Mendoza, Argentina
PLCB Code# 72470

The 2010 Gran Reserva Malbec is from Vistalba in Lujan de Cuyo and undergoes 18 months aging in new French and American oak. It handles the oak with aplomb, the nose vibrant and well-defined, with lifted cassis, blueberry and blackberry aromas that display clarity and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins and a very harmonious patina of dark chocolate-tinged black fruit. The finish is reserved, refined and does not like to boast. This is a very well-crafted, considered premium Malbec. Drink 2014-2022.-NM

Portions of the review above are a clear example of “wine bullshit”. 

Mild aromas of dark berries.  There is a moderate amount of ripe blackberry and black cherry with earthiness.  The tannins are well integrated but there is a tinge of excess acidity.  This is a more balanced and elegant Malbec than most.
