Far too tart and rough around the edges to begin with, give this one some time to breathe and it blossoms. Dark blue and red fruits with a raisiny undertone, I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

What I most love about wine is that one sip can evoke time, place, people, and emotions. The 2015 Antigal Winery & Estates UNO Malbec (SRP $17.99), takes me back three years to Mendoza, Argentina, the trip of a lifetime with a wonderful group of travel and writing professionals like me. Fermented and aged 12 months in French and American oak and sourced from higher-elevation, estate vineyards in Uco Valley, Tupungato, this malbec is not at all shy, with aromas of violets, cedar, blackberries, and spice. This dark ruby red, medium-bodied delight - with its interplay of vanilla, pepper, and dark fruits - is calling for grilled meat, roasted vegetables, and hearty potatoes. In this moment, my mind recalls an Argentine asado, whose intoxicating flavors of wine and food awaken memories of horseback riding in the Andes and late-night laughter in the streets of downtown Mendoza.

I would get it again. Enjoyable. Some spice to it. Solid cherry and soft oakiness.
