Fabre Montmayou Reserva Malbec 2011, Argentina Add to ...

  • Rating 88
  • Year 2011
  • Region Mendoza
  • Varietal Malbec
  • Price $15.95

Big, robust and dry for an affordable malbec, this weighs in at 15.2-per-cent alcohol, so you know it’s going to taste ripe. Yet it’s not just jam in a bottle. There are appealing notes of herbs and earth and an attractively bitter edge. Okay, some of that bitterness may come from the alcohol, but it’s hardly a fatal flaw. Available in Ontario.
