Trapiche Malbec

2004 Trapiche Broquel Malbec ($15) -- Mendoza, Argentina. Soft tannins, full fruit and medium finish. Great wine for a chilly December afternoon. Production notes and website are weak, but I read that 30,000 cases produced and Spectator gave it an 87 rating this year. I think it deserves at least an 88 1/2! Trapiche also makes a lower level line in the $7 range that is passable. This wine is good for the price. Packaging is very rich.
