Bodega Noemia de Patagonia J. Alberto 2007
Malbec from Argentina, South America
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
High-toned nose of violet and vanilla, with ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit. Stays bright and open-knit though the finish, with spice and graphite notes. Perfect for red meat courses cooked any style.
"Deep, generous flavors of cherries and sweet spice fill this malbec’s irresistibly creamy texture. The tannins succumb under the weight of the radiant red fruit, while the wine’s freshness only increases the pleasure. A great red to age five to six years, or drink now with beef bourguignon.
Wine & Spirits
"Very focused, with a pure beam of blackberry and boysenberry fruit that is kept honest by a superracy graphite note. The long, juicy finish lets mineral and purple licorice notes linger. Lots of fun to drink. Malbec and Merlot. Drink now through 2011.”"
"The 2007 Malbec J. Alberto offers up aromas of pain grille, mineral, violets, black cherry, and licorice. Dense and concentrated, it is the most structured of these wines and should evolve for 4-6 years at the least."
The Wine Advocate
"Malbec with 5% Merlot. Bright red. Sexy, perfumed, very ripe aromas of blackberry, licorice, flowers and sandalwood. Juicy, classy wine, with a lovely definition to its sweet flavors of crushed berries and flowers. Finishes broad yet quite lively, with firm, sweet tannins. "
