The 2008 Malbec Old Vine Finca Montuiri (100%) also spent 16 months in 70% new French oak. Coffee/mocha, exotic spices, incense, and black cherry are just some of the elements composing the wine’s captivating bouquet. In the glass it reveals full body, succulent fruit, excellent volume and length, and layers of flavor. Give it another 2–3 years to fill out and drink it from 2013 to 2020+.

Though I wouldn’t often spend this much on a Malbec, after tasting this wine there really is no way to say no. Beautiful complexity, full fruit, pepper and spice, silky mouthfeel and well-integrated oak notes make the price seem more than okay. Buy this in place of your favorite Napa Cab or Brunello.
