No idea how this got the 90 points they are advertising. Good but not great wine.

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black currants, plums, barnyard, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, spices, vegetables, earth, wet leaves, bitter herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, blackberries, black currants, wood, bitter herbs, spices, green vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a simple Malbec from Mendoza. Not fully balanced with mild complexity and a harsh mouthfeel. A little bitter on the ending.

Would probably benefit from a year or two in the bottle. I usually prefer to let these young Malbecs open up for 3 hours, but I did not have that luxury this time.

Better with food than just by itself, and would pair well with BBQ Meats.

Grapes are grown at around 3,000 feet elevation, and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

83 points.

$11.

マルベックって時点でジャケ買いしてみたけど、クセがなくて飲みやすい。
万人に印象が良い、福原遥みたいなワインでした。

Easy drinker. Table quality. Reasonable every day dinner wine.

I wanted to like it. But it was so thin and didn’t expand after opening. Never again.

Leather, Prune and Stone fruit on the nose. Tobacco and black cherry on the palate. Thin and short, lacks complexity. Pretty outstanding for the price, $7. Perfect for Taco Tuesday.
