Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Robert Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate (JM)
The 2007 The Marshall “M” is 100% Malbec aged for 18 months in 40% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a nose of toasty new oak, cinnamon, allspice, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. On the palate it is rich, savory, and plush bordering on opulent. With excellent depth and grip, this substantial effort will evolve for another 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2029.

90 pts Wine Spectator 6/30/09
Very juicy, with a lush beam of raspberry and blackberry fruit laced with fruitcake, melted licorice and sweet spice notes. The fruit lingers on the finish. - JM

89 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Full medium ruby. Black fruits, nutty oaked and enticing violet lift on the nose. Densely packed if a bit youthfully clenched, with black fruit flavors complicated by herbs, mint and shoe polish. A solidly structured, rather powerful Malbec with a serious tannic spine. Give this plenty of air, or lay it down.

88 pts Wine Enthusiast Magazine (MS)
A unique Malbec that is purple to the gills, foxy, and a little reduced on the nose. The palate is big and dense, with an herbal/floral/black fruit flavor profile that isn't common. This wine avoids typical Malbec darkness for its own path, which is unusual but challenging.



Winemaker Notes

The Marshall pays tribute to the founder. These grapes are selected from the oldest vineyard rows on the Lunlunta vineyard in the Lujan de Cuyo. The Intensity of low yielding old vines produces some of the best Malbecs in the world. Its deep ruby red color and brooding flavors of blackberry and wild cherry yield a complex, yet elegant wine. Further dimension comes from aging in French Barrels for 18 months.
