Review: **** $$ Durigutti Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2007 = BEST VALUE

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

By way of background, opening thoughts: I tried another vintage of this Mendoza malbec when it was several years younger than this one is.  I liked it a lot.  Let's see how the label holds up to more time in the bottle.  

Original tasting and review : This is Durigutti Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2007, finished at 14% alcohol, and first sampled seven years from vintage date.

In the glass: Deep, ruddy magenta, opaque in the center.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright, purple fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be tangy and vibrant.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact deep and full, with rich robes of ripe plum fruit, with sweet violet surround.  Yummy, full middle.  The finish rolls on with rich, slightly creamy purple fruit that trickles down your cheeks.

In summary: Overall, rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making this an insanely attractive best value at its modest price.  Especially attractive with the seven years of age.
