Aged for 8 years, this wine was slightly dry and deliciously complex. Notes of blackberry, dried cherry, and earth. Reminded me much more of a Cabernet than a Malbec. Not too sweet at all

Spicy, red fruit (strawberry, blackberry, a little cassis) and mild tannins. Medium acidity. Reminds us more of a cab than a Malbec.

An offer from my room mate. This wine is a few days old and starting to show some signs of oxidation, but definitely still has some life left. Black pepper and dirt on the nose. You definitely get the black pepper on the palate as well, but with some nice red fruit that isn't overly ripe. A wine that's got enough body and tannic structure to pair well with meat and cheese, but is also perfectly fine on its own. He says it was $10, which means this is a killer bargain wine.

Excellent "spicy" Malbec. Black pepper and blackberries. Medium plus acid perfectly balanced with medium tannins.
