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.

Best with game for example elk tartare. Fruity with slight tannins and some earthness.

Fine for drinking at home on a week night. Doesn't wow me.

Wow - very nice. Didn't expect that from an $11.00 (USD) wine. Very smooth
