Finca Sophenia 2009 Reserve Malbec - 87+pts

Finca Sophenia 2009 Reserve Malbec (Tupungato) Mendoza - Argentina

Availability: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $14-16
Alcohol: 14%
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.
