Sur de Los Andes Red LBL Malbec – Wine Virgin

malbec

I’ve done a review on another Sur de Los Andes Malbec, and the Red is different because it has been aged in two different oak barrels.  This gives it another level of boldness and complexity.  The Red is very dark and has a tannic sugary aroma.

The first sip was bliss.  It hits your tongue with a dark berry spice and rolls to the back of your tongue leaving warmth behind.  This is the boldest Malbec that I have tried and it was great.

Altosur Malbec Rosé – The Wine Virgin

AltosurThis Malbec was very unique.  It is an Argentinean Rosé Malbec – something that I didn’t know existed.  The burgundy color and aroma of fresh crisp fruit give the impression that the wine will be sweet.  It was surprisingly dry and had a great cranberry finish.  With a low tannic acidity and a fruity kick, the Rosé Malbec is very refreshing.  This was a very interesting and great wine!

Val de Salis Malbec – The Wine Virgin

val de salisThis wine was a very interesting Malbec.  I’d never tried or heard of a French Malbec.  Apparently the grape was originally from France, but it did not become a popular varietal until Argentina made it popular.  The Val de Salis had a deep red color and a dark fruit smell.  The French soil made a lighter, smoother wine with low acidity and a warm earthy spice.  This was a very nice wine that I would love to have again.

Sur de Los Andes White LBL Malbec – Wine Virgin

malbecThis Sur de Los Andes Malbec is one of the two Malbecs that I have tried by this label.  This bottle was the white label.  From what I have been told, the only difference between the two is that this bottle was aged in a steel barrel.

It has a deep red color with an upfront earthy aroma along with lots of fruit.  This Malbec has a lot upfront.  It hits with a deep spicy berry and tapers off leaving just a light spice in the back of the throat.  I enjoyed the complexity of this Sur de Los Andes.  It was very enjoyable and went great with cheese and salsa!

Ichanka Malbec – The Wine Virgin

ichankaThe Ichanka Malbec is what I would consider a fairly standard Malbec.  It was earthy and spicy with a nice acidity.  The front of your tongue gets hit with a mixed berry and is followed by warmth that smoothes out.  This is a full body red wine with a tart bite and great finish.  This Malbec was a real treat.  I can’t wait to have this wine again.

Don Rodolfo Malbec – The Wine Virgin

The Don Rodolfo Malbec is a big red with a lot going on.  It has a lot of upfront peppery spice, but is surprisingly smooth.  This wine has lactic acid in it and is very smooth and soft.  When you sip this wine, it hits the front of the tongue with a dark fruit spice and smooths out.  It has great balance and is a wonderful Malbec.

Zuccardi Malbec – The Wine Virgin

zuccardiThe Zuccardi Malbec is robust.  The very dark fruit aroma is intense.  With the first sip you taste a creamy cherry and blue berry.  In the middle of your palate a spice comes out and leaves a great finish.  The Zuccardi is great from sip to finish.  It has great fruit and spice with great complexity and balance.  Not much more you could ask for in a wine.
