88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2010

($16) Bright ruby-red. Blackberry and licorice scents complicated by a musky leathery element. Silky, dense and sweet, with flavors of dark berries, smoked meat and chocolate lifted by nicely integrated acidity. Finishes with a repeating note of dark chocolate. Packed with fruit, and a very good value. (Sussex Wine Merchants, Moorestown, NJ)

lush, full fruitiness, this is a robust wine. cherry, touch of licorice. smooth and well-balanced, so easy to drink. Excellent immediately after corking, held up well on day 2. Wish I could buy a case of this.
solid choice

This wine was a nice surprise especially in light of the price.

Like most of the wines we've tried from Wine Access, this was delicious. Brilliant rich, deep ruby color and refined tast on the palate.

I really enjoyed this wine (would give it 3.5 stars if I could). Deep purple-red color, very nice bouquet and a nice mouthfeel. Earthy and fruity with nice oak notes and a mineral-smoke finish. In contrast to the other 2008 Fabre Montmayou Malbec (Reserva Mendoza), this one finished well instead of falling flat.
Bitter core

This is one of my first WineAccess disappointments. The wine had a bitter core that would just not unravel. I could feel that there might be something deeper in this wine, like it wanted to give off some fruit, but alas, all that we got was the bitter taste of red fruit seed.

About Argentina

Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there. But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
