4/2006 GRAFFIGNA G MALBEC 2003 (PEDERNAL VALLEY)
Well, well, isn’t this an approachable Malbec. Not hard like so many other wines made from this grape. Fruity, intense, with a dollop of cream on the close. quite enjoyable. (Rating ****).
GRAFFIGNA seems to be a good label. Previously, we wrote of its Shiraz:
12/2005 GRAFFIGNA G SHIRAZ 2003 (PEDERNAL VALLEY)
We quite enjoyed this robust, fruity red wine with earthy undertones and the price was right for the quality- $16-$18 retail. A winner from Argentina. (Rating ****1/4)
