I'm a novice attempting to develop a nose, palate and small cellar of reasonably priced wines. Honestly I have yet in the reds to smell hints of blackberries, plums, etc., that the experts seem to smell. This is the first wine in which I actually smelled something: chocolate. I find it pleasant to just sip, but it's especially good with beef (med rare, grilled), red sauced pasta dishes, Mexican food, and crackers and smoked Gouda cheese. I've stocked up on this one, and will continue to try this Malbec from this vineyard.
Great wine for the price.
This wine is a great vaulue with a smooth vanilla finish, and a lot of complexity.

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 »
