In this price class, consistency is a virtue, and year after year Santa Julia's Malbec delivers the basics and a little bit more. This wine has some up-front oak to give warmth, lemon and a mocha or root beer quality to the bouquet. The palate revolves around plum and wild berry flavors, and there's no shortage of oak and mint on the finish.
