Trapiche Broquel, Malbec, 2009

4/5 $14.00

I’m starting to come to the serious realization that I have a slight love affair with Argentinian wine. More specifically, Malbec. Trapiche is apparently a vineyard that produces multiple types of wine, as well as different kinds of brands -Broquel happens to be one of its most affordable. However, do not let that scare you away from purchasing this wine (I mean it still averages $14, so we aren’t talking Two Buck Chuck status here). And I will say, this may be one of the better Malbecs I have had recently. It has a great depth of flavor, think black cherry, berries, and coffee, which produce a really nice aroma. Yet, despite the bold flavors, it is actually quite light and comes together for a very smooth finish that does not compete on the palate. For some this would be a deterant, but for those who want something simple and tasty that could easily be drunk with a pasta dish or a nice piece of lamb (a lamb burger perhaps?), it is a perfect choice. This is definitely a wine that you would want to have a few bottles lying around for any occasion.

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
