Very dark purple and opaque in the glass. Nose has tart fruit, some yeast, and a slightly harsh alcohol effect. Tastes of tart berries with a faint but off-putting balsamic vinegar note. Round and soft on the palate despite being light-to-medium bodied. Drinkable but with a few flaws that will keep me from buying again.

This is a 2018 opened July 2020. Definitely black cherry with taste of chocolate and smooth, but not comparable to the better Alamos Malbecs I have had. At $12-13 a bottle you may find better. Not bad for most wine drinkers.

Smells very much like Arg. Malbec. Cooked plums and grape juice. Flavors are balanced and agree-able. It’s fairly forward with the fruit, like-able.

Not bad. Needs to open for awhile. Might buy another depending on how this finishes.

I'm too drunk to climb those mountains, but this a great and simple Malbec. Even though it took 100 years to get correct it's great. I like my wine like I like my women, from south of the United States.
