For the price, this is great Argentine Malbec. The bouquet is complete and thoroughly alluring, with blackberry, leather, menthol and complex oak-based aromas. A full, well-built palate leads to flavors of chocolate, pastry, berry jam, beef jerky and salt. The finish is smooth and classy. Drink this just-right wine now through 2019.
