Notes of flowers on the nose. Lots of plum fruit on the palate.

This Argentinian Malbec is among some of the reds I enjoy. Especially with grilled meats. I let my palate get aquainted with this wine and I'll tell you one thing: It's deliciously plummy with a hint of toasty notes. With an exceptional smooth, lingering finish. For the price of 9.99 at the WineLoft, you can't go wrong. The customers were shocked to know that the price is reasonable and the wine is wonderfully placed among a lot of higher priced malbecs.

    For 10 dollars, not a bad malbec. Very fruity, medium body.

    Tasting Notes:

    Typical of Mendoza area wines, this reserve is a luscious, fruity, velvety trip to some of Argentina's famed high altitude vineyards. Aged 8 months in oak
