Finca El Retira Malbec 2002
This bottle had just been opened and the first thing I could sense was a distinct nose of blackberry and alcohol. Tasting it was different. Taste of blueberry, blackberry and meat. Well balanced and finishing with firm tannins. Very good with food but probably needs another 1-2 years in the bottle. 88 points.
Fincal El Retira Tempranillo 2002
Scent of cherry and oak. This had a nice fruity taste of cherry, cranberry, and light plum. Medium body and well balanced. Finish is medium length and dry but tannins are quite smooth. 89 points.
