Vintage Notes
2005

The 2005 vintage was characterized by low production, with medium to high quality results for white wines and excellent harvests for red wines, in particular our Malbecs. A dry and cold winter was followed by a cool spring with regular flowering despite some initial November frost towards the south of Mendoza. Conditions were dry and cool from January through March, with scattered February rain. The cool summer resulted in ripened fruit with fantastic colour, intense aroma, and a nice acidity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lively and deep, lush blackcurrants and rich black cherries are set off by spicy nuances of mint and sage. The mineral hints reveal natural terroir characteristics. An alluring balanced mouthfeel, this full-bodied wine exhibits vibrant rounded tannins, a pleasing sweetness and lingering aromas on a long finish.

“The 2005 Ofincado Malbec is sourced from a single vineyard planted in 1929. The wine’s class is revealed in its complex perfume of spice box, mineral, black cherry and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a layered, succulent, velvety-textured Malbec which, despite its size, retains elegance. This age-worthy wine has 4-6 years of aging potential and should offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2025.” Jay Miller

Wine Spectator – 91pts

“Rather flashy, with lots of plum sauce, melted licorice and fig bread flavors laid over notes of cocoa, tar and espresso. Yet the long, juicy finish keeps this all together, with a graphite edge adding length and grip. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases imported.”
