Not bad, not great. Just sorta...eh. Not as bad as "meh", so it's got that going for it. Some light pepper and decent dark fruit. It would probably be a good second or third bottle of the night, once you're already half-lit on the good vino. Besides, BOGO at Publix, so it winds up being about $6 a bottle. That'll do, pig. That'll do.

Update: after a couple vacuuvin days, cedar explodes all over it. I don't particularly care for cedar.

Fruit bomb with tiny bit of stinky notes. Bit thin on the palate and not much going on.

Smooth, easy to drink. Not distinctive but a solid Malbec.

Medium body, oaky but yet a hint of vanilla.

King Malbec’s packaging features royal caricatures that honor Mendoza, known as the “kingdom” of Malbec. Its message, “The Magnificent One,” encourages one to be a leader and influencer like the King. This 100% Malbec shows deep red with fruit and spice aromas. On the palate red fruit, a bit jammy with spicy notes of black pepper. Heavy dry tannins with bigger acidity. Not well balanced on medium finish, just ok.
