Dark, smoky in flavor with hints of both tobacco and licorice, the 2009 Malbec from Doña Paula Estate is a full-bodied wine that suggests suitability for a hush-hush members-only event at the local Ol’ Boys Club. Picture a smoking room with dark-wood paneled walls and suit-clad waiters pouring this wine. Full of fruits like dark cherry and plum, the tannins are duly noted just like the high alcohol content. Steak and chit-chat would be a nice pairing for this Argentinian wine from Mendoza. At about $13-17 a bottle, we found this to be a good, solid wine but not remarkable.

rckr1951 I've had a couple of offerings from Dona Paula in the past and they were solid wines. Nice to see an '09 review. Any score?

bjwdad Sounds like a pretty well-developed wine for a 2009. Forget the Ol' Boys Club, I'd prefer to enjoy this with dinner in the comfort of my own home. No suits near me, please. ;)

TravelPlusWine @rockr1951 I'd have to say B- on this wine.

@bjwdad Exactly! Although you'll probably imagine you're there... ;-)

Peppery and fabulous, the wine pleasantly lingers in your mouth long after you’ve swallowed. Sip or pair with spicy Asian food for a double the peppery trouble… yummy!

A bit sweeter than the average Grüner and not overly acidic. Yellower in color with an almond finish. Drinking with peppery Asian food makes the wine taste sweeter and helps to calm the spiciness of food.

At first, it’s sweeter and then smooth as silk on the palate. Aromas are fruity and florally. Finishes dry.

A fruity wine- honeysuckle and tropical notes. Very smooth with a hint of wood because, after all, it is a Reserve.

Lemony, acidic tartball that lingers on the palate. Balanced, fun, and fresh it doesn’t overwhelm making this a great overall wine.

Tropical aromas and taste. The acidity, while somewhat apparent, is amazingly discreet which is what makes this such an interesting wine.

Fruit bomb aroma with anise hints. This pleasantly tart mouth puckering wine feels well-balanced and has a nice lingering acidity.
