I'll be tasting Malbec wines in the $15 to $25 range next week, and that's where most of the wines tasted in 2008 would likely fall today. This brings me to some observations about these wines. While that 2008 tasting focused on Argentine Malbec exclusively, there were few other options to include had I wanted to, with the exception of Cahors. Today, that is not true, as the wines from the U.S. attest to with this tasting. Further examples from France, Australia, South Africa and the U.S. will reinforce this in round two.
