89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

Full saturated ruby.  The aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and mocha show an almost port-like ripeness but good lift.  Dense and sappy in the mouth, with rich, concentrated blackberry, cassis and menthol flavors showing a liqueur-like quality.  Just this side of too much, but this wine boasts excellent intensity, suave tannins and terrific length for the price.

An Excellent Reserve Malbec from Mendoza
01/19/2013
by Rasico11512825
I have visited the Fabre Montmayou winery in Vistalba (Mendoza), Argentina) several times, and I have never been disappointed by the quality and value of their wines. The 2010 Malbec Reserva shows plenty of dark fruit on the palate with good tannins and acidity as well as a relatively long finish. The wine is still young and undoubtedly will become more complex in the next few years if properly cellared. A great value for an excellent Malbec from one of the premier boutique wineries in Mendoza.

Dark fruits, notes of vanilla and spice, firm tannins, long finish. A perfect pairing to grilled meats. This is for those looking for the big fruit and structure.

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.
