Very harsh with little flavor. Not for me

Target, $12

Very dark color with a hint of purple. Smooth dried fruit aroma. Immediate prune/dried cherry flavor coats the mouth, it's pleasantly slightly sweet with a little smokey dryness that quickly gets replaced by a sweet anise spice note that lingers for a long while. Medium amount of tannins adds a great and necessary texture to offset the slightly sweet flavor profile. Absolutely in love with this wine, especially for the price. I got it on sale for $12 but it tastes like it's worth at least double that.

A very surprising wine. Maybe 2016 was better than expected

Nicely balanced Malbec. Body on the lighter side, fruity aroma.

Very dark in color in the middle, plum and dark red on the outside.

Great aroma - clean, smooth, leathery, and a little bit of a freshly sliced stone fruit.

Medium in body, semi dry, high in acidity, medium tannin. and not much of an alcohol taste but it's probably medium boziness.

Super tasty. Plum, dark cherries, red apple. I really like it.

Can't beat it for $14 and I'm assuming this pairs well with most foods.

A touch sweet for a Malbec. Smooth, light, velvety. Lush black cherry flavor. Gentle tannins. I was drinking the 2015.
