Chacras 2011 Malbec, Mendoza, Nick Goldschmidt
Here's yet another overachieving red from globe trotting winemaker Nick Goldschmidt. Nick's M.O. is to seek out single vineyards that have character and truly express their terroir. In the Andes foothills at 2,000 feet above sea level he's located such a vineyard. The vine age averages 40 years which is well into maturity where the roots go deep and the the grapes are concentrated and and complex. He ferments 100% Malbec, no Cot no Bonarda. He ages it 6 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels. It shows the sweet, pure Malbec fruit that Mendoza is famous for (black cherry, plums, currants). It also has hints of smoke, tobacco and licorice rounded out with supple tannins. Only 700 cases were produced. A Must Try!

    Comments about Chacras 2011 Malbec, Mendoza, Nick Goldschmidt:

    What can't Nick Goldschmidt do? We all know his California Cabs and blends are out of this world, and this Mendoza Malbec of his is no different! Elegant yet powerful with ripe black plum and blackberry fruit surround by hints of eucalyptus, pencil shavings and smoke. Great balance and a long finish on this one...

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
