Susana Balbo Malbec 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry and blueberries framed by hints of spices and mint. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and notes of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of mint on the finish. This is a ripe and rich style of wine with long velvety finish.

Begins with malbec’s usual magic-marker ink and an underlying hint of musk, but the flavor itself is quite a contrast – light and tart, with not much structure yet enough fruit to satisfy. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=409)

Overrated indeed! This wine is boring on the palate. You don't feel it on the midpalate. It is bitter. On the nose you get good things though, spics, black fruits, blackberry. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because of the sniff and the color. It is purple like good Malbec, but that doesn't live up to the way it tastes!

a good solid Malbec from the Mendoza region. Good fruit and full mouth feel, opens up nicely after a bit and goes very well with our spicy meals

This is sweet and light, a great in between red and white wine. Perfect for summer!

This ripe red shows a candied to its edge the dark cherry and plum sauce notes, leading to an aftertaste of licorice and mocha. Drink now.

Bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, violet, mocha and nutty oak. Suaver and sweeter than the Signature cabernet, with juicy, fruit-driven black plum, blackberry and violet flavors framed by harmonious acidity. Boasts excellent precision and inner-mouth tension for a wine in this price range. Finishes with a firm tannic spine, sneaky length and a hint of minty lift. This is 14.5% alcohol but I never would have guessed.

Good full medium ruby. Crushed blackberry, licorice and violet on the lively nose. Quite ripe and sweet in the mouth, showing impressive volume and breadth for the price range. Finishes with serious ripe tannins and noteworthy persistence. Susanna Balbo's

Unapologetically modern, with a big core of black and purple fruit and toasty oak to back it up. A flashy Malbec that will make friends easily.

A dense, chewy red, exhibiting dark raspberry coulis, blackberry reduction and plum skin notes that remain fresh through the smoke- and mineral-tinged finish. Fine length. Drink now.

Full, saturated red-ruby. Very pure, soil-inflected aromas and flavors of blackberry liqueur, mocha, truffle and smoky minerality, complicated by hints of milk chocolate and crushed herbs. Juicy and spicy but a bit youthfully imploded, with enticing sweetness leavened by brisk acidity. Most impressive today on the long, energetic, firmly tannic finish, which leaves behind notes of blackberry, black cherry, espresso and dark chocolate. Give this at least two or three years in the cellar before pulling the cork. Susana Balbo is now toasting her barrels with convection, which she says gives sweetness to the wines without an overbearing oakiness. (A second bottle, of equal quality, was more plush and pliant in the mid-palate, but equally long and gripping.)

Der Wein aus Malbec und Cabernet Sauvignon zeigt eine tiefe purpurrote Farbe mit dunklen Reflexen, Himbeer, Cassis und Kirschen-Aromen in der Nase. Angenehme, getoastete Vanille, schwarzer Pfeffer und Tabak-Note. Viele saftige, wunderbar strukturierte und weiche Tannine, lang anhaltender Abgang.
