Finca Sophenia 2009 Reserve Malbec - 87+pts
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Date Tasted: February 11th, 2012
Tasting Notes: This is the wine to seek out for folks who are tired of overly juicy and predictable Mendoza Malbecs that are generally available at this price point. Consultant winemaker extraordinaire, Michel Rolland, has his signature major extraction and structured tannins stamped all over this textured and well balanced Malbec. Subtle earth and mineral notes are also present amongst the concentrated plum fruit and French oak characters of spicy vanilla. Ready to drink now and may development further over the next 2 years. Drink now-2015.
