2010 Graffigna Centenario Malbec Reserve

2010 Graffigna Centenario Malbec Reserve

Nearly black in the glass, this Argentine wine is fragrant with dark berries on the nose.  On the palate, this medium to full-bodied wine offers aromas of ripe raspberries, dates and notes of pumpkin pie spices.  The finish is medium in length and showcases oaky and peppery notes.

I poured half the bottle through my Vinturi wine aerator and had the rest straight out of the bottle.  Aerating or decanting would be optimal for this young wine.

Pairings:  Grilled rack of lamb or Thai food.

Style: Red

Grape Type(s): Malbec

Region: San Juan, Argentina

Around $10.

This wine was provided to me for sampling and I am adding to my repertoire as it is truly enjoyable.
