Monteviejo’s flagship is the Lindaflor Malbec. The 2005 was aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak. It offers up an ethereal perfume of pain grille, vanilla, pencil lead, espresso, blueberry, black cherry, and a hint of dark chocolate. Quite massive on the palate yet light on its feet, the wine exhibits thick, intense flavors, gobs of sweet fruit, concealed tannin, and a very long finish. It should easily age for a decade and drink well through 2030. Bodega Monteviejo, owned by Catherine Pere-Verge (also the proprietor of Pomerol’s Le Gay), is located at the foothills of the Andes, next to Vista Flores, south of Mendoza. The globe-trotting Michel Rolland is in charge of winemaking. (JM)
Full saturated ruby. Brooding aromas of black fruits, gunflint, game, violet and sexy new oak. Lush and sweet on entry, then seamless, suave and rich in the middle, with smoky soil tones adding complexity to the dark berry and chocolate flavors. Wonderfully layered, broad wine that should benefit from bottle aging. Finishes with suave tannins and excellent lingering sweetness. (ST)
