I was extremely disappointed with this wine. After giving it an hour to breathe, no improvement. While the wine was okay, it certainly was not worth the price. I found the initial taste to be rough like that of cough syrup, while the aftermath to taste like a $25 Shiraz. While I understand this is not Astralis, or for that matter Grange, for the amount of money paid I was expecting much better.
This is the 4th bottle of this particular vintage I've had. Each of the four has been slightly different, but each was quite good. This Malbec seems to be sweeter than most. Definitely easy to drink and seems to be a crowd pleaser of wine afficionados and guzzlers alike.
