Winemaker's Notes

Tamari 2009 Reserva Malbec comes from the Uco Valley and high zones of the Mendoza River in Argentina. The vineyard is at an altitude of 900 to 1100 meters and the soil is stony, poor and fast draining. The climate is well balanced between warm daytime temperatures and cool nightime temperatures, good isolation and low rain level - bringing out the finest qualities of the Malbec varietal. Be sure to try this fruity, concentrated wine with grilled red meats, lamb, ostrich, wild boar, duck, pork and strong cheeses.

Color: Intense and deep red garnet

Aroma: Floral, fruity, intense, honest. Flowery notes of violets and jasmine, ripe red fruits, like plums, cherries and chocolate morello cherry. Aging in oak barrels adds complexity, and notes of hazel nuts, almonds and cinnamon.

Taste: Very good attack, good acidity, nice and delicate. It is a wine of medium body, long and tasty. The fruit in the mouth recalls notes of plums, caramel and toffee. Very interesting tannins, tasty, sucrose and long. A ripe fruit aftertaste and a very good persistence are emphasized.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium purple, attractive spicy nose, some elegance, lengthy, fruit-filled finish."

Style: Big & Bold
A first sip revealed a juicy, robust malbec with flavors of ripe cherry and a hint of cotton candy. There was just enough oak in this wine to give it a complex earthiness which was complimented by smooth round tannins. The array of vivid flavors worked together flawlessly delivering a malbec that was bold and unique.

Aside from some blends with Malbec, this was my first one. I liked it twice. I had a couple glasses one night and the next night it was even better, smoother. Pardon my French, I'm still a newbie at the wine tasting experience.
