89 Points | International Wine Cellar , December 2010

Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry and licorice lifted by violet. Suave, dry and lively in the mouth, with nicely delineated flavors of dark berries, licorice and chocolate. Builds nicely on the back half, finishing with serious broad tannins and noteworthy energy. Very sophisticated, varietally accurate Argentine malbec for the price.

This is my type of tongue tickler! Mind-expanding Malbec, makes me never wanna come back "up north" to quote Borges: "The truth is that we live out our lives putting off all that can be put off; perhaps we all know deep down that we are immortal and that sooner or later all men will do and know all things." That may be true, but either way, i'll be contented to sit here on the dock a' the bay sippin my 2009 Fabre Montmayou Malbec Barrel Selection Patagonia. Forgive the pun, but it's like shooting fish in a barrel. - Mikey the Anarchist Librarian

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.
