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.

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.

Very good Malbec, just enough sweetness but not much, smooth and easy to drink
