Aconga Malbec Blend Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

An ancient Incan word meaning “Stone Sentinel,” Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the Americas, towering over Mendoza. It is this great mountain’s name that inspired “Aconga”, a symbol of grandeur and the celebration of a land steeped in history. Argentina, known as the land of silver, embraces artisans well known for their unparalleled silver craftsmanship. * Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon * Chenin Blanc-Chardonnay www.aconga.com

For the $3 price range, it's very drinkable. I think it would make a perfect gift/dinner drink for people inexperienced with wine. For the regulars, you may notice the light color and mild taste. I agree with Igbagby, buy a case and store it for a few years, I'm sure it will be great. Overall, I've been very surprised with wine from this region.

Picked up dirt cheap at Kroger grocery store. They appear to be the only distributor. Drinks surprisingly well for its age. I think it could improve from a 3 to a 4 after another year or two of aging, though. Could be a cheap way to give the ol' cellar a boost for the short-term.

I bought this wine on sale at a grocery store for $3. I had already tried all of the other choices available and was looking for something different. Upon opening the bottle, I sniffed the wine and it smelled sweet. I do not care for sweet wines. But, then, I took a sip and was surprised. It is mildly dry and not sweet at all! In fact, there is a faint woody taste to it. I am not a connoisseur (obviously, huh?), but I know what I like and this is really a very nice red wine. I would definitely buy it again.

Very inexpensive and drinkable- as with most malbecs it is medium to full body with a nice mild fruity finish. Comparable to a Trader Joe's malbec of several years past, Argenta. Argenta has improved with age.

My brother-in-law brought 3 bottles of this wine he purchased in Ohio at a Kroger's for $4.00 a bottle. for me, the wine started with a hint of vinegar (which turned me off), however when allowed to breath a bit it, it gets better. partially dry with a nice, tart finish. For the price, it's a very nice wine!
