This is a huge wine. It is deep red violet with dark fruit aromas, firm structure,
full-bodied, long finish. Excellent with rich spiced dishes, strong cheeses,
roast or grilled meats, tuna, salmon and chocolate.
"The 2007 E. Foster Reserva is 100% Malbec sourced from old vines of 50+ years and aged for 12 months in 30% new French and American oak before bottling without fining and filtration. It reveals an excellent bouquet of cedar, tobacco, spice box, lavender, and black cherry that jumps from the glass. Medium-bodied with an elegant personality, this is a sweetly-fruited, spicy, easygoing Malbec for enjoying over the next 6-8 years."
The Wine Advocate
"This big, unctuous wine fills the mouth with black fruit, sweet, cinnamon-like spice and a touch of leather. It develops complexity as it opens in the glass, taking on fresher dimensions while it maintains its candied depth."
Wine & Spirits
Earthy & Spicy
A group of us enjoyed this wine together, and it has some nice complexity and color, a little spice and kind of chewy flavor, mainly lacks a great finish. Would not necessarily buy it again, but a very drinkable and interesting wine.
