Well balanced, very enjoyable, may buy a case.
Medium bodied, semi dry with supple tannins. Malbec wines tend to be serious wines. It is almost a serious one but enjoyable though.
we liked it-will try again
5 stars for the quality/price ratio
I disagree with the other review-- a light but true Malbec
Very nice Malbec. Definitely a great value and a "regular" buy. Excellent alternative for friends who find Cabernets too robust. Nice year round wine.
I'm searching for an everday wine. Rodney Strong Merlot certainly does it, but, I've yet to find an alternative. I've tried every cab in the store under $20 and decided I don't like cab anymore without a steak. I've been turned off by every Aussie and South American wine I've tried and wonder how they can score 90+ and be so horrible. This is an everyday wine with no strong, harsh aftertaste, but, smoothe and long lasting. I'll go buy a few more bottles to see if I didn't get the only good one and then may raise to 5 stars at this price range.
Phebus is as advertised, "A big, robust, spicy wine from Argentina's most famous grape variety." This one goes down very smoothly with nary a hint of anything harsh or naughty. Anything you might be able to identify as standing out is cleverly hidden in the blend of flavors all of which you can identify but not brag about. The swish is tasteless but the afterglow is wonderful albeit subdued. By the time you identify what's going on with Phebus, you will be looking around to see who swilled that whole bottle while you were enjoying a few sips. A great re-do and a case of this 9$ a bottle is definitely on my to-do list. Dave --> http://ocgrands.com/vino/index.html
this is a good malbec
I tried to tell my husband that this wine was inexpensive but he didn't believe it when he tasted the Phebus. So I had to 'Prove' the price was correct.
Smooth. Very drinkable bottle for under $10. Will keep in my rotation.
Good, not great
It was fine. Nothing that stands out but for $8.99 so what?
COULD REALLY TASTE THE BERRY COMPONENT
Good - for Malbec Okay
Not a bad wine, but I do not care for licorice, so this was not a stand out for me.
Unless you like wine that taste like VICK's 44 cough medicine drink up cause this was a HUGE let down
