What I like about wine:

They get me buzzed and they taste good. Wine is good food.

This wine is a little to lean and austere for my tastes with no subtlety or balance. The fruit is much too young and I prefer a riper Malbec to balance out the tannins. The guy who sold it to me, told me that they used French Oak to soften it with hints of vanilla. There's nothing soft about this wine, I suspect new oak and taste no vanilla. There is a bright bitterness to it that runs down the center of your shrink wrapped tongue. It also cost me $17.00. But it drinks like $9.00 bottle. I recommend airing it out and paring it with dairy. I bought it at Vino Fino on Amsterdam.
