This wine is very good and at $10.99 a bottle, it is tough to beat. Impoved after breathing for 30 min or so. Some of my snooty (wine) friends thought it was very good and thought that it was more expensive than it was..Ha!
Had this wine last night with some bbq chicken. Very nice. Great mouth feel...round and full. Flavors were expressive. Can't wait to have more.
Great Wine. I love Malbec's.
Soft on the palate, full of fruit, and very intense/deep coloration. And at the price, an excellent value. We intend to stock up on this one. It's a keeper!
While a little hard-edged, this full-flavored malbec tastes of dark berries and has a (very) slightly spicy finish. Decent Mendoza malbec for the price.
This wine was smooth and very dry.
Held an unscientific wine tasting with 5 budget 90 point rated wines and this was the consensus winner among the 50 people at the tasting.
Very drinkable Malbec from Argentina. Would definitely buy again.
Decant, decant, decant. In my short experience as a wine indulger i have noted the indispensable action of decanting. This otherwise lackluster wine turned perfectly fun with food and time to get some air.
Title was borrowed from another site, but is consistent with my impression. Relatively inexpensive but Alamos malbec is even less costly and I enjoyed it as much (although my son said there was bottle variation within a case). For not much more there are better malbecs. I do not have as good a nose as whoever said "Complex aromas with ripe plums, blackberry, blueberry, sweet tar, licorice, black pepper, mint, truffle with a hint of mocha flavors, giving an expressive and typical Argentinean character." I wonder how anyone can detect so much in one wine? I can agree with WS review except rating. Not 90, but very good and should be enjoyable with BBQ, pizza, and probalby hamburger.
I thnk I drank it too young, but I drank a half a bottle so it could not have been THAT bad! Had it with a mesquite grilled beef tenerloin and some grilled green peppers and a slice of toasted organic whole wheat slathered in butter. 2006 was the vintage, I should have kept it a couple of years but I was craving a malbec!
Austere, yet enough fruit to balance. Great wine for the $
Great Malbec for the price. Already ordered more!
This Malbec did not disappoint. It was full body, full of fruit with low tannens. It drinks very wel right now. A great wine for the price.
This wine was very bland and not much appealing about this wine. Not one I would purchase again.
I have not always been a fan of malbecs, but I found this Dona Paula an exception. Agree with another reviewer that it should first be decanted. Would purchase again.
Only had the first bottle of six I purchased. First impression is that it is smooth and a little light on the fruit power from a Malbec standpoint.
