A few years ago, Rodolfo ‘Opi’ Sadler snagged the Malbec Trophy at Argentina’s national show. Then came international acclaim — the Argentinean Red Trophy at the 2009 Decanter World Wine Awards. Here’s the next chapter of his sumptuous Malbec.

We are normally big fans of Melbec's from Argentina. However, this particular year is not impressing us. Perhaps it needs to lay down longer. Because at this point we would not necessarily include it in future orders.
This Malbec was definitely enjoyable and better than average.

Review 30 for J Opi Malbec 2012
My Favorite Wine is:Red Wine Only
Date:June 5, 2014
Bought as an add on to a case. My wife loves Malbec and we were both disappointed. The others we have bought, Finca federatata, alambrado, accabella, San Lucas were wonderful. Too bad I still have 2 more bottles.
This is one of my go to wines. I have purchased this over several vintages and have always enjoyed it. It has a pleasant flavor and goes well with dark chocolate. When I have shared with friends, this Malbec is always well received and is usually the first bottle to empty.
I just opened my first bottle of this wine. I was actually going to let it age for awhile because it is such a young vintage but because I have a few bottles I decided to try one. It is surprisingly good; rich berry flavor and (as the label says) i could taste the underlying vanilla and smoky notes. I can't wait to see what happens when it is left to age several years.
