Beautiful purple bleeding out to a red rim in the glass the wine visually shouts "body" and it does have it. Here we get a wonderful blend of blackberries, plums, "gaminess" and hints of spice greeting the noise while it delivers black fruits, pepper, smooth tannins and a fine acidity slowly tapering off into a lovely finish.

On initially opening this Malbec was tart on the nose. After a couple of hours the tartness was gone, replaced by hints of blueberries. Good medium body with some spiciness on the finish when paired with spicy, sweet teriyaki.

Let this wine breathe before ever attempting to drink it!!!! I didn't do this at first, and it smelled just like urine!!!!! Anyway, after which, dark fruit with an "edge" on the nose, very oaky and with a rather twangy finish. For $10, won't buy again.

    an underrated wine, methinks, velvety, smooth like 'butta' on the midpalate,very fruit forward, quite quaffable for those hesitant on the 'darker side' of the malbecs

    This wine has very deep, rich, and pleasant dark fruit, almost a plum-boysenberry flavor, and it comes by it honestly, not a fruit bomb. Fruit is well-developed, however, the other elements needed to achieve complexity are a bit faint. Would pair quite well at a party with dishes of steak and similar. Nose of dark sour fruit with hints of earth and leather, dried leaves and musk. Smooth round and well-integrated on the attack, a bit watery mid-palate, action is toward the front of the mouth, with mild fuzzy tannins and medium acidity along with deep rich earthy fruit (plum, blackberry, and boysenberry) and a hint of vegetal. Finishes rather quickly with sour fruit and vegetal.

    Round and forward, with tasty Bing cherry and damson plum notes that linger on the juicy finish. Drink now.

    This Malbec has a deep purple color with violet tints, complex plum, fig and floral aromas, rounded tannins and excellent length with a distinguished character. Excellent when paired with game, roasted red meats or pasta.

    As Argentinean rosandeacute; goes, Maipeandrsquo;s is a success. The wine is clean and colorful, with cheerful cherry and raspberry aromas that are decidedly not funky, skunky or stale. The palate is snappy, with mild berry fruit flavors and a clean, medium-length finish. Candied and friendly but not forced. Drink now.
