Bodegas O. Fournier, Mendoza
Alfa Crux Malbec, 2011
Region: Uco Valley
The 2011 Alfa Crux Malbec shows a good balance between spicy/oak-related aromas and the juicy berries and violets that are classic Malbec descriptors. This is a very concentrated red with some dried fruit character and hints of toasted oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied, and although the wine is powerful it feels less so because of the good freshness and balance.
Robert Parker: 92 points, James Suckling: 92 points, Jancis Robinson: 16.5/20 points
