Review: *** $$ Altitude 1050 Malbec, Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina, 2005

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Malbec.

Original tasting and review : This is Altitude 1050 Malbec, Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina, 2005, finished at 13.5% alcohol and first sampled a full decade from vintage date, in February, 2015.

In the glass: Deep ruby red.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, but enchanting and rich lightly oaked blackberry fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be full and creamy.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft red raspberry and fuller blackberry surrounding.  Pretty much a straight-on fruit sip, though, without a great deal of texture standing behind the upfront fruit.

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