Hard at work...this is fleshy and ripe but has a hit of green. Wonder if they gave it a tad of stem inclusion. Ripe and dried red fruit—something pruney going on. Not my favorite but I never get Malbec in blind tastings so attempting to learn. This is just a big mouthful of dried fruit served in a woodshop. Gives me flashbacks to when my granddaddy once made wine and the adults were trying it (I was maybe seven) and my uncle snuck to pour his out in the big sink in the garage near where granddaddy kept his woodworking stuff. The uncle turned out to be a ass so I’ve no idea if the wine was good but I drink this and...The smell of wood and wine...

Smooth. Nice glass on it's own. Didn't try it with a meal but it would be good with hearty soups. Tasty with white cheddar and dark chocolate.

Decent for under $10. A nice table wine and something I would buy again

Good wine. Both enjoyed, needs to breathe. Not the strongest aftertaste but good
Bit too woody . Not fruity enough
