Château du Port Cuvée Prestige Malbec 2010

Dark in color with a dark berry nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some slightly sweet dense black berry notes, almost blueberry like. Classic Malbec. On the medium length finish the wine displays some tannins. Alcohol and acidity are well in check. I would give it an 89 or so.

From the LCBO web site:
Château du Port Cuvée Prestige Malbec 2010 — VINTAGES#: 380683

STYLE – Full-bodied & Firm
Using fruit sourced from old vines, this firm, tannic and concentrated wine has a fine balance between the dense texture and bright black-plum and berry flavors. Given its tannic structure, it needs to age, although it would be a great accompaniment to a stew if consumed now. Score – 90. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, March 2013)
