My wife purchased this and in her words, "this greatly exceeded expectations!". At $16, this is a steal. Silky smooth black fruit, leather mint, and lavender on the palate. This reminded that I should not forget about drinking more malbecs. James Suckling rated this 93pts...while I think that is a bit high, it is very good and definitely recommend!

Ruby hue with medium-high saturation. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, cherry, chocolate, leather, pepper, plum, and raspberry. Medium-plus body; firm, medium-plus tannins; and medium-plus acidity. Smooth yet bold on the nose with a deep, plush, lasting finish on the palate. Highly accessible.

Nice. Bold. 2017 vintage. 6/2020. Paired well with chili rubbed strip steak. Held up nicely.

Really like, as well. Nice after work wind down, and easy to drink with grilled chicken. Nice dark fruit and soft tannins. Tasty.

Tastes exactly like a less expensive but well done malbec would. Juicy, peppery, fruity but acidic and tannic. Solid value
