May be the age on the bottle talking, but this Malbec is singing! Medium purple on the eye with heavy blackberry and plum on the nose. On the pallet the full body is immediately apparent, some ripe dark fruit also present, chocolate and oak as well. The tannings are strong, nice balance to the wine and there is a pleasant finish. Bought this about five years ago and it is certainly a pleasant surprise. Again, lesson learned: never underestimate aging value wines, this is great.

Tobacco leather and dark cherries. Lingers on the palette.

Impressively made. Plummy fruit, but not rich and over-extracted. For $20 retail, very respectable

Very soft. Not a lot of tannins but I would've liked more fruit.
