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.
Defintely oaky but didn't totally overwhelm fruit and nice acidity. Seemed to improve with repeated tasting, perhaps needing to find right temperature. My rating 88 to 89 (WS). Poultry and stronger cheeses likely good pairing.
