Fabre Montmayou Gran Reserva Malbec 2007 wine review by (PB)
Thanksgiving morning I started our day with crab omelets with an asparagus spear for color and a brilliant bright red caviar garnish. The wine--Prosecco with peach nectar. Nice way to start the morning once the bird was stuffed.
I am breathing this Malbec for dinner along with two other offerings to be blogged later.
This wine is a deep purple to black cherry with aromas of huge jammy, black berry and sweet dark berry fruit.
Palate--Plush tannins giving a nearly velvety texture, tight berry flavors which should open once breathed. (indeed it does!) Hints of tar and more fruit on the finish with a little bit of a chewy ending. With a few minutes of air, blueberry pie filling rises to the top. This was the clear favorite of the folks gathered around our table.
This is a sturdy wine which should do well with the stronger dishes on our bountiful table. Raise a glass with thankful hearts and a big thanks to my S.G. family!
