Natalie's Score: 88/100

Tannic with tart black fruit. Aromas of varied dark fruits, smoke and cedar. Full-bodied: decant 2 hours. This will also do very well in the cellar, but even better in your glass.

Malbec food pairings: grilled radicchio, lamb cutlets, pasta, beef tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Mendel Malbec has intense aromas of charred wood, cigar box, clove and black cherry. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with forward acidity, tight tannins (decant for 30-60 min) and a medium to long finish. This is a sipping wine; drink 2014 – 2018 (cellaring potential +1 pt). My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90(+1) pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted Nov/13.

The grapes for the 2010 vintage come from ungrafted 82-year-old vines in the vineyards of Mayor Drummond and Perdriel. The wine is matured in new, second and third year use oak. Source: Winery

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
