Las Acequias Malbec 2007

Purchasing details unknown. 

Aaron:  I thoroughly enjoyed this bottle.  Some leaves and oak on the nose weren’t overpowering and generally this had a light smell.  The best way I can describe the flavor is subtle.  It’s a little light but very smooth with some oak and spice complemented by mild fruits.  It was certainly complex but much calmer than I expected for a malbec and would make a good transition bottle for those who are becoming a little more adventurous in their wine drinking.  92 points

Teri: The Malbec delivers a burst of flavor then smooths out to velvety flavors of light oak, raspberry and pepper. A long and soft finish pairs well with its dark cherry smell. As with most Malbec flavors, the spice sits on the finish and this one lingers pleasantly. 90 points
