Another well-polished Malbec from Trapiche's single-vineyard series. This one, from Tupungato in the Uco Valley, is the most “red” of the '06s. The fruit is juicy and bursts with acidity and power. Cherry, red plum and cassis are the lead flavors, and it finishes on a bed of chocolate and peppery spice. Good now but will benefit from another year or two in bottle.
