    September 29, 2014 - Wine Spectator scored this as a 91, but I was a bit disappointed. I drank this by itself, so maybe it is better with food? I'll probably give it one more try.

    May 3, 2014 - Popped and let this slow ox for about an hour. Nose of raspberry, currant, cherry and roses. This was open for business when I started drinking it but improved over an hour and a half. Big and juicy, this had flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, boysenberry and finishes with a slight herbal, earthy note. Finish is very nice and lasts about 20 seconds. Great for the money. Easy 90 points.

    December 26, 2013 - Yes, I found this wine at my local grocery store for $6.99. It's a solid 90 pointer.... nice fruit, good acid and firm tanins. Don't pass it up.

    December 6, 2013 - I like the wine for its very good price point. The wine still has a little aging or decanting time needed. Short finish and not a lot of complexity, but who was expecting any from a $14 Malbec blend. Plenty of black fruits up front with hints of blueberries and dried brown/green herbs/sage.
