Like the aromas, the flavors of the 2009 Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes are mostly tropical fruit but combined with a bit of citrus. This is a dry, light-bodied white wine with marked acidity and a moderate flavor intensity. Like other Torrontes, it's best when drunk cold and shouldn't be allowed to warm up too much.
The 2007 Navarro Correas Coleccion Privada Malbec is full bodied, but perhaps just a bit thinner than other Malbecs tend to be. The flavors are strong in plums and cherries accompanied by strong - almost astringent - tannins. The finish is long but flavorful and pleasant. You can enjoy strong, flavorful, semi-hard cheeses like swiss or sharp cheddar with the 2007 Navarro Correas Coleccion Privada Malbec. Aged hard cheeses, like parmesan and gouda, can be especially good because the Malbec brings out more of their flavors.
The aromas of the 2007 Pascual Toso Torrontes are about medium in strength and intensity, with primarily tropical fruit and floral scents mixing together. Overall, though, the aromas are a bit older and less pleasant than other Torrontes, in particular the 2007 Catena Alamos Torrontes. I'm not sure if I would go so far as to say that the Pascual Toso Torrontes had a smoky or even musty edge, but it did seem older and less fresh.
The flavors of the Crios de Susana Balbo 2007 Malbec are dominated by berries, cherries, some smoke, and even perhaps something like a cigar. Although relatively moderate in strength, the flavors here are a bit stronger than some other Malbecs you might find.
The rich flavors of the Terrazas de los Andes Reserva 2006 include the fruits and berries you would expect in a Malbec from Argentina, but it also has hints of leather around the edges as well as a nice spicy, tangy finish. This a medium to full bodied wine with medium, round tannins and a crisp acidity which produces the nice finish. Overall the Reserva Malbec is a nicely balanced wine that is worth drinking in a variety of circumstances.
