Reviewed this a few times. My gateway introduction to wine. Affordable. Fairly safe and balanced. Lots of earth. Dark dry fruits. No complaints when people keep pick this up from whatever Trader Joe or grocery they find it in and bring it to dinner parties.

Half bottle that delivered a nice bright wine with hints of pepper, blackcurrant and a little spice. Paired well with a chorizo, ham and loaded cheese calzoni.

Pretty drinkable. Berry-heavy start, dry velvety finish. Not my favorite Malbec but better than average.

Dark and on its way to a depth that resonates quality; but not quite. Cherry, burnt caramel, espresso and earthy oak. At 16, I’ll buy a few more for the Fall.

Not usually a Malbec fan but I really enjoyed this.
