Inexpensive, drinkable Malbec. Must let breathe to get an appreciation of flavor.

The 2015 was very nice as an after-work glass, even without food. It definitely benefited from a pass through the aerator. It was a little on the stiff side beforehand.

Loved this wine and got $1 back on Ibotta. Bought at Groves for less than $10.

Ruby red, light, plain but effective flavor. Good to offset smoked pork

Light and fruity. Blueberry jam and plum notes without a whole lot of substance. Very faint flavors of vanilla and tobacco on the finish.

Meh sort of thin. Not much flavor or body. Not exact bad but not worth the $ in my opinion.
