I fell in love with malbec while taking wine classes at UNLV. Tried probably about 9 other malbec's at a college budget, and then spent a little extra on this bottle. And by far it is the bedt malbec i have had. Great tannins, great over all mouth feel, blackberrys, maybe some earthiness. would go great with a fillet mignon. I liked it by it's self though.
