2008 Rio Mendoza Malbec Reserva, Mendoza
Argentina's wine industry has built its reputation on the shoulders of Malbec from its high-elevation Mendoza vineyards. The 2008 Rio Mendoza Malbec Reserva is a glossy black-colored wine with luscious fruit and remarkable intensity. It is a brilliant example of the grape's potential and the region's precious terroir. Aromatics of blueberry, smoky vanilla and black pepper set the tone for a fruit-driven body dripping with layers of black fruits, spice and earth. The finish transforms this robust Malbec into a refined, elegant wine with lovely balance and nuances of campfire, ground pepper and worn leather. Delicious in its youth, the wine will also improve with another 3-5 years of proper cellaring.
