87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2008

($13) Good medium ruby. High-toned aromas of blackberry pastille, licorice, violet and fresh herbs. Vinous and on the lean side, with fresh acidity framing the candied blackberry and licorice flavors. Juicy but a bit dry on the back. Not bad, but a tad pinched.

Try it with a slight chill,this is alot of wine for the price

At room temp this wine will definitely need time to open and blossom. I added a slight chill to it and the rich and vibrant fruit and spices jumped out of the glass. Dark plum and raspberry flavors wrapped around and a core of rich and deep spice and tannins.

Good wine always makes me think about food and this lil beauty made me think grilled meat. Black fruit wonderfully rich with great texture. Grab a bottle and a filet!

But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
