100% Malbec Smooth, fruity, nicely balanced medium-bodied wine with hints of vanilla
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.
An Absolutely Hug Wine... Not for the Faint of Heart. Giant mouthfuls of rich dark velvet! A Sip... Shall We! The Rogue Sommelier http://RogueSommleir.com
For 10 dollars, not a bad malbec. Very fruity, medium body.
