2012 Renacer "Punto Final" Malbec Mendoza
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(includes 10% cabernet franc): Good bright red. Aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry and licorice pastille. Sweeter and more pliant than the Punto Final Malbec, with fat blackcurrant and licorice flavors sexed up by a note of oaky torrefaction. Finishes with sweet tannins and lingering notes of bitter chocolate and violet.
Rubber and minerally aromas settle on ripe black plum and berry. In the mouth, this Malbec is firm and fresh, with full-force flavors of blackberry, plum, leather and salt. A strong, steady finish confirms overall quality.
A fruity red, displaying moderate plum, floral cherry and licorice notes. (Web Only-2013)
The Renacer Punto Final is a classic Argentine Malbec showing lovely and plush dark cherry fruit with a bit of new oak, vanilla and spice from the barrel treatment. From vineyards in the Uco Valley, Luján de Cuyo and Medrano which are over 50 years old.
