Light Red Tango Of The Vines

Yet another inexpensive (aka cheap) wine for consideration and enjoyment.  Generally speaking, I enjoy Malbecs.  OK, fine, there aren’t many wine varietals and/or blends that I don’t – generally speaking – enjoy.  Certainly, there are some individual wines that I don’t enjoy at all.  But this time around was not one of those exceptions.

Vineyard:     Santa Florentina
Wine:           Malbec
Vintage:       2009
Appellation: Famatina Valley – Argentina
Price:          $8.99

Notes:         With the scents of plum and dark cherry on the nose, this lighter-bodied red provides plenty of black cherry, plum, and fig flavor with hints of caramel.  The finish brings a very pleasant prune with just a touch of leather.  The wine has good acidity and very modest tannins.  Overall, a fairly pleasant wine from the land of the tango.  As it’s a 2009 and on store shelves now, I’d say this is not a selection for cellaring.
