Outstanding smooth excellent value
I have been to Argentina and tasted lots of Malbecs and blends from the Mendoza region. I tend to find many Malbecs there and particularly those that end up here in the states as having a metal after taste. I found no after taste with this Malbec. It is smooth, hot, well balanced, and rich in flavors of dark berry. It is excellent, and wow what a great price. My family loved it too. Enjoy
Smooth, full- bodied, and a real bargain for a quality Malbec. Great with meats, but a tad strong for those not seeking deep oak flavors. Not overly soft, but aromatic and rustic, deep wild berry flavor
I know it is not proper to describe wine as grapey, as a taster should say what OTHER flavors are in the wine. But, when drinking this juicy, ripe, hedonistic malbec - grapey describes it better than likening it to some other BS fruit. There are classsic malbec flavors, in a very modern style. this would be great for a summer bbq. and it is a true bargain that goes down easy.
Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there. 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.
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. Read More »
