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.

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.

For the price this is a nice wine. It’s a a fairly full Malbec with a nice nose. There is a little pruney and jammy but not over the top. I would definitely get it again especially because the price is good and i can imagine it’d be good if cellared.
