I was intrigued when I found this bottle at my Costco. A WA state Malbec from a producer I’ve had wines from, and enjoyed before, for $17.99. I had to give it a shot, and I’m happy to report that I found this to be an excellent wine.Nose was a little floral with some berry and a little spice. In the glass the wine is really an light inky purple, looking a little younger than it turned out to be. Flavors of black licorice, blueberry, tobacco and some cinnamon lead into a nice dry, long finish. Very nice wine.I’m about to fire up the grill and then will see how this pairs with some barbeque chicken and grilled veggies. I’m glad I tried this one. It’s a fun wine, a little something different, and a good buy at $18.
