Marcus James Malbec 2010

Member Review by freerangeathlete:

I keep coming back to this inexpensive wine. I've had a bad bottle, but I believe it may have just not survived shipping in this nasty, hot summer.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Delicious berry notes and hints of spice.

We did a brown bag Malbec taste test. We thought CERTAINLY the more expensive Malbec would win - we all seriously LOVED wine A and expected it to be the expensive one.... but in the end the favorite was the $2.99 bottle of 2010 Marcus James Malbec! OH MY WAS IT SMOOTH!

From a 'novice:' "Consumed with / after supper (my home-made chili con carné), Sat. May 21, 2011. Initial notes: nice purple color in glass (reflected light); clear, deep red in transmitted light; light (slight) aroma; initial taste - very dry, not sweet; dark berries. With supper: I'm ambivalent about this pairing: It was "O.K.," but this is perhaps the driest red that I've had, which is a distraction (same comment re: post-meal sipping). It's certainly palatable, but I much prefer the excellent Farnese Daunia Sangiovese, the Chilean Carmeneres, or our B.C. [British Columbia] reds; e.g. I previously had the Copper Moon Moonlight Harvest Shiraz with my chili, and it was a better pairing. Not bad for the price ($8.99 CDN, + $0.10 recycle deposit)."

Syrupy, with a very questionable after-taste... As I was sipping the wine before dinner, I thought that perhaps it wasn't a great sipping wine. I then paired it with that night's dinner (some lightly-breaded Pork filets served with penne, and broccoli in garlic in oil). The excellent meal unfortunately didn't improve matters. For $5.00 the Marcus James Malbec was certainly a gamble and I have had worse; but I can think of countless better choices for just a few dollars more.
