You were funk! Then you were black cherry, black berry, dried raspberry and blueberry, with black pepper and red flower mixed in. I couldn't tell if you were old or new world, maybe you were confused yourself. You had hints of gravel, and vanilla, baking spice and cinnamon rounded your profile out. You were medium acid medium plus alcohol medium to medium plus tannin and medium finish. I called you an old world Cab Sauv, but you were Altos Del Plata Malbec 2012 Mendoza.

While it tasted fine for a couple of glasses, it had something a bit off about, like it was too polished. The next day I had a migraine from just two glasses, which tells me it is a highly manipulated, mass produced wine, given my past experience

Smooth drinking Malbec. Rich oak with semi sweet fruity finish. Currant notes with slight spice and light acidity. Good value. Would buy again.

Dark red fruit on the edge of jammy with little to no tannin. Not a blockbuster but perfect with el brasero mixto.
