Terrazas Reserva Malbec 2005

Price: free--it was a gift!

Comments: After watching Chloe, the black lab, this week for some friends, we received this lovely bottle as thanks. This is the first Malbec we've reviewed, and after tasting it, we realized how reticent we have been. They are super-groovy. This one exhibits wonderful flavors of plum, raspberry, and licorice (and hints of vanilla and chocolate). It has a great, long finish that lasts and lasts. The only quasi-negative we can say about this wine is that it has a high alcohol content (14%), which was noticeable in the first sip. Of course, high alcohol wines are not necessarily bad (wink, wink). We're both looking forward to drinking more Malbecs, and this was a great one to start with.

Rating: 7.5/10

My wife likes that wine quite a bit. I do as well. Hopefully we'll get to Argentina within the next few years to drink lots of Malbecs!

Glad you liked it! I'm sure you more than deserved it after all those evenings of dealing with Crazy Chloe.
