This is a heavy, oaky style of Malbec with incredibly ripe fruit that creates thick aromas in front of a tannic body with huge, jammy flavors of raisin, blackberry and cassis. The finish tends to¬ward creamy and candied, with a baked, lasting flavor
“Medium ruby-red. Bright, slightly high-toned aromas of black cherry, cassis, licorice and violet, plus a hint of fig. Supple on entry, then moderately sweet and firmly structured, showing a creaminess of texture to the dark berry and spicy oak flavors."
The 2009 Don Nicanor Malbec, which spent 12 months in a mix of new and used French oak. It offers up a straightforward aromatic array of cedar, spice box, floral notes, and black cherry, setting the stage for a full-bodied, ripe, one-dimensional but tasty wine with good depth and concentration. Drink it over the next 6-7 years.
Black as they come, with saturated, jammy aromas of sweet berry fruit, blackberry syrup and toasty oak. The palate is lush and chewy, with black fruit, spice and herbal flavors. Toasty and black on the finish. A big wine with plentiful oak as well as purity.
Don Nicanor offers aromas of red and blackberry fruit which are mirrored on the palate with notes of spice and toasted oak. It has a soft attack, round mouth feel and ripe tannins with good fruit concentration on the finish.
Good full ruby. Blackberry, blueberry pie filling, licorice and mocha on the slightly medicinal nose. Sweet, supple and rather suave, with good texture and depth to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. Nicely concentrated wine, and not overly sweet. Finishes with hints of mocha and coffee.
