Winemaker Notes

The wine shows loads of spices, herbs, and packed, dense dark fruit aromas. On the palate, the wine is juicy, then has ripe fruit with a bit of warmth on the finish.

Food Match: venison, roasts, red meat, grilled meats, game, beef, BBQ.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Malbec Vina Francisco Olivo offers a similar aromatic and flavor profile but with a bit more weight on the mid-palate. It has gobs of sweet fruit, incipient complexity, and enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years. This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2013 to 2025.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Rich and concentrated, but very pure, this relies more on a raspberry and red currant fruit profile backed by red licorice, floral and mineral notes, than sheer strength. It's densely layered, but bright on the finish thanks to fresh acidity. Drink now through 2013. 1,189 cases made.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Big, dark and masculine, with shoe polish, coconut, cola and burnt toast aromas accenting intense plum and blackberry. All of Trapiche’s single-vineyard signature wines have been excellent in recent years, and this one from Francisco Olivé’s vineyard is robust and shows all the requisite and familiar dark berry, cassis and barrel characteristics. A huge, modern, steak-friendly red to drink now through 2012.
