Establecimiento Baudron: Malbec 2009

Establecimiento Baudron: Malbec 2009

This wine is made from grapes harvested in Mendoza at the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The unique combination of excellent weather and soil characteristics of this valley allows grapes to ripen well naturally.

The nose was of cherry, citrus spice and sage. The sage was a unique aroma for me, very interesting. I was hoping it would show in the palate as well, and it did! The palate was dominant black cherry, currant and orange rind, with subtle wet sage brush. The underlying theme of this Malbec was a dry grass land after first rain. The finish was cherry and molasses. As the bottle opened, the nose included a flower aroma. The palate mellows, much smoother, with black cherry, currant, orange rind, sage and mocha. It was surprisingly complex, thought the structure wasn't solid. This can be expected of a "table wine" with a price point of $4. Overall, it is definitely worth the money, especially to try a Malbec with this distinct sage character. Cheers!
