Maipe Malbec 2008

  • Area: Argentina, Mendoza
  • Grape: Malbec
  • Alcohol: 14%
  • Rating: Black 86 Dilettante 84 Nwjr 86

Description: A perfume of violets, green apple, roasted nuts and vanilla is the best part of this wine. Undeveloped flavors of not quite ripe fruits create a mouth watering sensation. The green apple finish lingers. We think a couple of years in the bottle will tame its youthful exuberance and release riper flavors. It wasn't bad, it just needs more time to develop. Decant at least 45 minutes. Synthetic cork.

Price: $9
