2016 Trapiche Broquell Malbec

June 8, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#22-18-PIE

Malbec from Argentina continues to gain in popularity, and the Trapiche Broquel is a fine example of how this lessor known Bordeaux Grape has thrived in the Southern Hemisphere. Malbec is a different twist from Cabernet and Merlot, and while having similar taste characteristics, it has a personality all its own.

The 2016 Broquel Malbec has a beautiful, deep red color, with a nose which is just as vibrant, having aromas of dark berries and a touch of blueberry. The flavors swirl through the glass with rich black cherry in concert with black raspberry, and a hint of mellow plum. It has good intensity in the finish without being over-powering. The alcohol content is 14.5%, and Norm's score is 89.

We were fortunate to pair this rich Malbec with a thick juicy New York Strip, grilled medium rare, with a fresh salad alongside, brimming over with "straight from the farm" ripe tomatoes. There is nothing better in the summertime than a thick juicy steak, farm fresh tomatoes, and a bottle of really good red wine!

price : $12 - $16

score: 89
