Famiglia Meschini Premium Malbec Syrah 2008
I attended a really fun wine tasting last night that featured Argentine wines – the hottest wines today. Eric, the Wine Guy introduced us to Eugenio & Teresa Meschini, owners of the Famiglia Meschini winery in Mendosa Argentina. They captivated the 70 participants with their charm, passion, sense of humor, and outstanding wines!
Eugenio & Teresa are third generation wine makers commited to producing the best full body, authentic, Argentine wines made by Argentine wine makers. Already a big fan of their Premium Malbec, I was interested in learning about and tasting their full line of wine. I was dully impressed with their whites as well.
One of my favorites last night was the Premium Malbec Syrah. It has a superb bouquet of black current, blueberry, and black cherry. Followed by a layeredwine with gobs of ripe fruit, a plush texture, and outstanding balance. Wine critic, Stephen Tanzer gives it 87 points.
Here’s what my friends had to say about this amazing wine. “I was surprised at what a great value these elegant wines are, it’s difficult to find this great of wine for this price point”, and “when we moved into the Cabernet Reserva and Gran Reserva, it tasted like we were drinking a $60 bottle of wine – I love it!” One more; “Loved learning about Argentine w ines from an Argentinean and the authentic recipe was a fun surprise.”
