A nice malbec for the price.
External Reviews for Ocaso Malbec
Malbec has found both fame and glory in the sun-drenched climate of Argentina! This wonderful wine is dark violet in color. It starts out with spice and floral notes on the nose with intense blackberry aromas. It has exceptional levels of concentrated fruit and complexity with flavors of cassis and ripe red cherries, with hints of nutmeg, mocha and vanilla. Smooth, round tannins highlight the creamy texture and lengthy finish. Serve with grilled flank steak with garlic and rosemary roasted potatoes.
Soft, silky and very flavorful, with expressive notes of espresso, nutmeg, charred toast and black/blue fruit. Versatile and friendly, it works with gorgonzola-topped filet mignon as well as BBQ chicken.

Ocaso has been an absolute staff favorite for a long time, and Malbec is the jewel of their fantastic collection. Lively, with an abundance of herbaceous, earthy notes, this medium-bodied red is a summation of the best characteristics of its varietal. Perfectly balanced in body, it can be paired with heavier fare such as steaks and barbecue, but it doesn't overpower lighter dishes such as chicken and pasta. Bright, ripe fruit combines with spicy notes on the finish for a pleasant, lingering conclusion.
I highly recommend this super fine, fruity malbec from Argentina. The pretty purple color and highly evocative nose of freshly picked, perfectly ripened fruit (such as strawberries and raspberries) portend a truly great taste experience. This wine is absolutely delicious on its own, but it matched superbly with avocado cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries.
An extremely elegant Malbec with fresh blackberry fruit, savory blueberry, palate cleansing mineral and a super clean, satisfying finish. Really well-made wine, showing its pedigree with a perfect balance of dark fruits and acidity; it never feels flabby or over-extracted. Will work great at the table, matching well with roasted vegetables, grilled meats or pasta carbonara.
