Winemaker's Notes

Don Miguel Gascón Malbec is a full bodied wine with a deep violet color, showcasing flavors and aromas of blackberry, blueberry, plum, dark cherry, and a hint of mocha. The wine is elegant and rich in texture, with soft, round tannins and a long velvety finish.

Gascón Malbec pairs well with grilled red meats, wild game, pasta dishes and chocolate molten dessert.

The 2009 growing season in Mendoza began with a warmer than usual spring, and continued the pattern throughout the season. A late-season frost in 2008 prevented normal bud formation in the spring, resulting in lower yields. The month of February saw unseasonably warm weather throughout the region, and consequently, veraison occurred earlier than normal in most areas. Throughout the summer, the weather remained both hot and dry, resulting in generally thick skinned fruit with very concentrated flavors. The fruit also maintained excellent levels of natural acidity, lending freshness and vibrancy to the grapes. Overall, the dry season combined with lower yields resulted in fruit with exceptional levels of concentration and complexity

This wine bottle has a great look, and pulls you in. Upon opening the bottle, I could smell the wonderful nose. Unfortunately, I like malbec's that have good tannins, and a cigar/ tobacco flavor. This had notes similar to Zinfandel. I can see how many would love this but, I am looking for something a little more bold.
