My favorite wine now Full bodied, JUST dry no bite Very smooth
I just received the 2011 and it is just as good as the '09 and '010! This is becoming one of those dependably great wines!! The blueberry and intensity makes it my gateway wine to get my friends into Argentine wines!
Also, I recommend the Alamos Malbec and Red Blend as affordable reds that are still underpriced
NOT REALLY SURE, WHAT YEAR IS THIS WINE
Don Miguel Gascon Malbec is a full bodied wine with a deep violet color, showcasing flavors and aromas of blackberry, blueberry, plum, dark cherry, and a hint of mocha. The wine is elegant and rich in texture, with soft, round tannins and a long velvety finish.
Wine Maker Notes

Since 1884, the wines of Don Miguel Gascón have been recognized for the rich, smooth flavors that come from Argentina's Mendoza wine region. High altitude vineyards situated along the Cordillera of the Andes Mountains produce full mature grapes for this classic Malbec. Don Miguel Gascon sailed to Argentina from Aragon, Spain, at the age of 19 years, without a penny to his name. Four years later, the ingenious Don Miguel managed to buy 42 acres of land, plant vineyards and build a winery. Today the winery is owned by the Nicholas Catena family. In 1993, Nicolas Catena and a group of investors acquired a majority interest in Bodegas Escorihuela. In the tradition of ardent adventurer and founder, Catena and his partners have turned Bodegas Escorihuela into a Mecca of experimentation with food, art and wine. Bodegas Escorihuela is the home of Restaurant 1884, which has one of the best wine lists in Argentina and a changing menu created by the renowned chef Francis Mallmann.
Gascon Malbec pairs well with grilled red meats, wild game, pasta dishes and chocolate molten dessert.
