Alfredo Roca, Family Reserve, Malbec 2008, unbalanced by herbaceous notes

Alfredo Roca, Reserva de Familia,Malbec 2008,By Roca Wines, USD 20

A malbec from San Rafael Departament in South Mendoza.
Nice malbec with red cherries and plum with a strong herbaceous note not quite wonderful to my taste. Good oak envelope like chocolate and vanilla. Long lasting red. An 88 points red, not quite typical neither attractive even though somehow complex. Overpriced to my taste. I don´t feel time´s going to improve the basic structure.
