You made the 2011 MV Malbec one of the most popular reds in the store last year, and we thought it was all gone in December. Now it’s back – at least for a little while. It’s still a very impressive wine. Luscious aromas of blue/black fruit get a just right kiss of high-end French oak. The flavors coat your palate with dark fruit and notes of dark chocolate, crushed herb, and sweet spice. Everything stays focused and precise with a long finish and fine-grained tannins that will sing with a steak now or mellow gracefully over the next few years. Designed to sell for $60 ($90 before Argentina’s currency crashed), it’s a must try from $16.98 – while it lasts.
A distinctive, delicious, blend of Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot from the hills overlooking Luca. Wonderful purity, a nice 91 point rating from Galloni, and a fine deal from just $24.98!
It was great when we featured it last Fall - but tasting this stunning Rhone red again last week convinced us to buy all that was left. A compelling value from $19.98.
