Inky ruby red, my first 100% Malbec I don't really taste much of any flavor notes

A Costco bargain wine that I think is outstanding, especially on day two. Worth a try.

Tasted two weeks ago, too long ago for me to remember. So it wasn't awesome but it wasn't a stinker either. Remember thinking that it is not like old school rustic Cahors.

I agree with others it's better after decanting or the next day. I like it for the price.

Not bad, a cheap Malbec, I've had this before.

This 100% Malbec from France was way more smooth than it had any right to be. Sure, it's three years old but still - there were no biting tannins or leathery, peppery notes that I've come to associate with Malbec's from South America. Instead, it was just a bit fruity and easy to drink.

No wonder it had 90 points from Wine Enthusiast

TML rating: I'd buy again!

Balanced Malbec that pairs great with both red meat and chocolate.
