2008 Ruta 22 Malbec (Patagonia)

Malbec at its darkest! Aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry jam, and beautiful floral notes filled the glass. There was even a hint of gravel. Definitely not an aromatically challenged wine.

This Malbec displays flavors of cocoa, blueberries, and toasted oak. It's not super complex, but it shows noticeably different layers of delicious flavor. Let's call it 2D! It has excellent mouthfeel. Tannins are just right, body is full, and finish is long. One of the better Argentine Malbecs.

Body: Full
Approx. Cost: $11
