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.
