DOÑA PAULA ESTATE MALBEC 2006

This is a lovely smack on varietal Malbec from Argentina. Unlike the French who only use Malbec as a blending grape (primarily) the Argentinians will often use it entirely on it’s own. This is a lovely deep wine. The color is dark purple with good berry fruit flavors on the mid pallet. The alcohol and oak are well integrated. I bought this back in Nov of last year and it just keeps getting better. It is a smooth well refined wine for the money. Very hard to beat. I would give it a 90! I only have one more of these left … pout. Unfortunately no more of these left in the LCBO …
