Hello Snooth!

love Malbec and found an exception bottle which was Mendoza Station 2008.  Trying to find more and cannot.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only place I've ever seen the Mendoza Station label (and it is a very attractive label) is at Total Wines.  If  you are looking for the 2008 vintage, specifically, I can see where you might be out of luck.

Thanks, I can't seem to find it anywhere.  Total Wines here in Greenville said they could not find it anywhere.  We have some 2009 but absolutely not the same.

I feel for you.  I'm learning to not go into mourning when a vintage is no longer available.  I'm being coached to think, "There is more GREAT wine out there".  So, start trying other malbecs and hopefully you'll find a 2009 or 2010 that is really good.  All the stuff we love is eventually going to change.

Well, in Mendoza particularly, 2008 was kind of a mediocre vintage. There was rain and frost and it was a freakishly bad vintage for most producers, so if you like that wine, look for a newer vintage and you'll probably be getting a better wine.

Also, that label may be something made just for Total. It may exist as another label elsewhere, but again, look for a better vintage. I'm drinking the 2005s and they're wonderful.
