Carmine Granata Oak Malbec 2007 – a review of sorts

March 31, 2011 at 6:36 PM Leave a comment

After working with these wines for over 6 months and selling out of this one, I can finally put it up on the blog! I wanted to stay objective and not mix the wines I sell with the wines I review on the blog, but since I got such great feedback from so many other people about this wine, and since I wouldn’t sell it if it didn’t fit into my philosophy, I thought I would share it… hopefully we’ll get it back in soon…

This Malbec from Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, offers a full bodied, bold fruit forward style of wine, heavily accented with vanilla and nutmeg from the 12 months of new French Oak aging. It pairs great with steak and other hearty meals! It will develop over the next few years, but is very approachable now.
