great Malbec on the nose, nice acidity touch, but still too much tannin. Maybe it'll improve with age?

From Bodegas Nieto Senetiner's signature line, this glass-coating opaque-purple Malbec is appropriately bursting with personality. Bold aromas of tar, blackberry, blueberry and smoke are nicely replayed on the palate. Dry, with ripe fruit, voluptuous tannins and a core of balancing acidity. This medium-full-bodied wine will evolve over the next 3-5 years. If enjoying it now, its deliciously long, fruit-laden finish will leave you salivating for a marinated steak, cooked rare.

nice big gritty style malbec. cherry tobacco nose leads to cherry, vanilla, musty oak with hints of lead mineral tones on the palate. must be unfiltered b/c theres plenty of tannins to chew on.

The 2008 Don Nieto Senetiner Don Nicanor Malbec, aged in French oak for 12 months, is full bodied, fruity, with nice aromas of strawberry and prune. Tannins are subtle to refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is medium to long and smooth. Still a bit too young, drink 2016-2020. My impression: NICE, 89 pts - well crafted wine for reasonable price, recommended. Tasted Feb/12.

Nearly opaque in purpled colour. Nose of blueberry jam, cherry, violets and black candy licorice. Well balanced mouthfeel. Palate of black fruits, licorice root, and sweet spice. Lengthy finish. Mar 2011.
