Review: *** $$ Accuro Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2008

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Accuro Malbec.

By way of background, opening thoughts:  Malbec and Mendoza - what could be more natural?

Original tasting and review : This is Accuro Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2008, finished at 14.5% alcohol.

In the glass:  Deep purple, muddy magenta, opaque away from the edges.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, lightly funky merlot-red fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be soft and simple.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact more complex and nicely-knitted-together than anticipated, with creamy but still bright char-broiled red/black fruit, with a solid wash of tannins behind the scene.  A little hint of mint lightens the blackness.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
