I really like this wine. Bold fruit flavor paired with Beecher's tangy flagship cheese. Great treat!!

Fresh and black with good minerality and balance. A bit pedestrian.

At 1st very nice dark fruit with a sour cherry bite and a bit of smoky oak. As it warmed up it became more candied. Better slightly chilled

Young but balanced entry-level #malbec from #catenazapata which I had the pleasure of visiting in #mendoza last year. Dark fruit, tobacco, a trace of garrigue.

Fig, blackberry & tobacco with a stony finish. Big fruit & body with a fairly low tannic structure.

Deep purple colour, dry with medium acidity and medium-high tannins. Medium bodied.

Alchool sticks out a bit too much, not well balanced by fruit and acidity.

Not the typical Malbec, still drinkable.

Haven’t drunk a Malbec in ages so this was a nice change. Gave two hours to breathe, it opened up nicely and was laden with rich fruity flavours.

Plummy and over extracted. Smooth and a touch of RS.

Nice daily drinker. Dark fruit and some earthy notes and flavor and soft tannins.

Big, the good kind.
Decanted for an hour, such a tasty bundle of joy for the price.
