2005 Mapema Malbec Mendoza, Argentina

SKU #1038486

90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mapema is run jointly by longtime winemakers Pepe Galante and Mariano di Paoloa. The 2005 Malbec is purple-colored with aromas of cedar, spice box, mineral, and black cherry. Medium-bodied and elegant, it has a smooth texture, lots of spicy flavor, and a fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years." (Dec. 2007) 90 points from Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe, bold and creamy, with vanilla and plum aromas. Vivid on the palate, with cherry, blackberry, coffee and chocolate flavors all registering. It’s almost a lush wine, but there’s firm but controlled acidity and tannins that keep it from losing focus. A Malbec that rises and conquers, and the price is right." (11/1/2008) From Wine Spectator: "Bright and juicy, with raspberry and plum fruit backed by shaved vanilla and fruitcake notes. Open-knit, juicy finish. If you want an introduction to Argentine Malbec, this is a textbook example. Drink now through 2009. 1,500 cases made." (June 30, 2008) From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Aromas of mocha, licorice, violet and cured meat. Sweet dark berry and spice flavors are framed by ripe, juicy acidity, which gives this wine a refreshing character. Finishes firm, with ripe tannins and good length." (Jan/Feb '08)
