2008 Salvatore Principe Malbec Cafayate Valley Argentina

Another bottle break away from my norm was a wonderful Malbec from Argentina. Having tasted this varietal on a few occassions, I found that they are either hit or miss with my palate. The Salvatore was a wonderful wine.

Once in the glass the aroma of ripe plum followed by a wonderful spice really sets the wine up nicely. A hint of chocolate as I continue to swirl.

Nice silky wine. The juicy plum really starts you taste off. In the middle the spice really warms you and the finish is a wonderful juicy raspberry. I am excited to taste other Malbecs if they are as good as this one.
