Mission Briefing

Codename:

1000 names for Malbec

Do you love a great Malbec? Your fellow Operatives loved this wine so much, that they’ve declared it to be our Top Malbec of the Year during this year’s Wine Intrigue Awards period. Be sure to reserve yours soon, as this is the final time we’ll be showing this super popular wine.

There may be over 1000 names for the Malbec grape, but we have just one for today’s Maroon Wines 2013 Reserve Single Vineyard Malbec: Delicious! Today’s Super Spy Sunday wine is a fruit-driven, elegant and very delicious wine that we offer to you at a steal of a price.

On the nose, this wine is incredibly fruity and full, with ripe blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and wild strawberry, with soft, sweet spice, sweetwood, violets and rose petals.

On the palate, rich and concentrated, with bold flavors of raspberry reduction, smoky blackberry candy, young strawberry, sweetwood, dried flower petals, black currant, spice box, and a hint of white pepper.

We’re very lucky to have such a special relationship with Maroon. Our long-standing friendship with them has allowed Wine Spies special access - and special pricing - for our Operatives. Enjoy the benefits and stock up on this beauty, which is ready to drink now and good for the next 10+ years.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark ruby from heart to glinting edge. Fat wine-stained tears form high on the glass wall before moving swiftly downward

Smell:

Ripe blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and wild strawberry, with soft, sweet spice, sweetwood, violets and rose petals.

Taste:

Raspberry reduction, smoky blackberry candy, young strawberry, sweetwood, dried flower petals, black currant, spice box and a hint of white pepper.

Finish:

Extended and very flavorful. Plush tannins slowly add a dryness and a grippiness that gives the wine a crushed velvet feel.

Pairing:

Enjoy this very flavorful wine with barbecued lamb, beef or pork, especially with smokey, chili-based rubs.
