The 2010 Ninety Plus Cellars Lot 23 Old Vine Malbec begins with typical Malbec aromas of blackberry and plum as well as baking spice and a little cinnamon. All these aromas combine to make a very nice bouquet that is more engaging than your typical Malbec. The wine tastes quite good with dark fruit and dense spice. It has lots of oaky overtones, but there’s plenty of fruit as well. It ends with a dry, medium-long, spicy finish. Overall quite a tasty wine. Those oaky overtones decrease as it gets more air so it may have actually been even a little better on day 2.
