I enjoyed this great buy malbec. I bought it in a store for $11.99, so I feel like I got a great deal. I agree with the manufacturer that the oak is very well integrated. I also like the fruit notes that don't overpower the wine's bite. I'm not picking up the maple finish, which for me is a good thing.

(this vintage is sold out)

Style: Earthy & Spicy
This is a great spicy red at the price. Black pepper and black cherries came through for me on the tongue.

Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $11.29
This is a very tasty red with lots of fruit and soft tannins. For the price, it's hard to beat. We had it with meatloaf and even through some dark chocolate cupcakes!

The malbec shines through in this mix. There's plenty of fruity bite, but also some smooth structure. This tastes far beyond its price point.

This a great combination of malbec and cabernet for fullness and structure with merlot for mellowness. Very drinkable yet has enough structure to be interesting.

We had this tonight with dinner. This is a very accessible and reasonably priced Malbec. It doesn't have the nose of my favorite cheap Malbec, Broquel 2006, but it's definitely going to become a regular. I had my glass to sip right through dessert, and it pairs well with chocolate.

Punto Final Malbec Classico 2008
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $15.00
This really is an amazing value. It bursts with flavor. If you like malbecs, this wine brings all of that wine's characteristics to the table. It has bite, but still manages to have a nice smooth finish. I had never had a stainless steel aged wine; I hope they're all this good. The grape really shines.

This is a deliciously smooth Sangiovese. I had it with some chicken parm and baked zita. It would make a great full bodied, but friendly, wine for a party with multiple palettes. It has just enough bite to keep it from being a cloyingly vanilla exercise.

Very accessible right from the bottle. Structured, but not difficult for multiple friends. It was a hit when having friends over for cheese- and beef-based small snacks. We sipped this between the meat appetizers and chocolate treats.
