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.

Deep purple in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, blueberries, oak, light vanilla, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf, mocha, coke, earth, cloves, leather and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, spices, peppercorn, bell pepper and bitter vegetables.

Spicy finish with nice tannins and peppercorn.

This is a drinkable Malbec from Mendoza. Not fully balanced and a little harsh, with bitter notes.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. A good food wine to pair with BBQ Meats. For me this is not enjoyable, although drinkable.

The bottle looks beautiful, and maybe someone should have put more attention into the wine, rather than marketing it.

Aged for 8 months in French oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

I’ve wanted to try this for a while. Soft mouthfeel but with the peppery nose comes a lingering peppery finish with spiced vanilla, pepper, & dark ripe plum tastes. This could compliment a nice steak meal. Interesting that the label says it’s barrel-aged for 8 months in French and American oak.

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

On a Friday night, after a long work week, my go to for its boldness. The bottle is quite unusual which I like.
