2018 Mosquita Muerta Cordero Con Piel de Lobo Malbec

Malbec is such as good place to find value in the wine world today, so bumping into this one for $7.99 at Costco caught my interest. This bottle is $14.49 at Total Wine, and around $12 elsewhere online, so Costco’s price is amazing. The wine inside is too, making this a big time Costco winner. …

2017 Bodega Cuarto Dominio Lote 44 Malbec

Here’s your perfect everyday drinker. This wine turned out to be exactly what I hoped it would be, a tasty Mendoza Malbec for under $10. I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive Malbecs like this, and while they typically represent pretty good values, some stand out more than others. This is one of those wines. …

2016 Mosquita Muerta Sapo de Otro Pozo Blend de Tintas

2015 Bodega Catena Zapata DV Catena Tinto Historico

Here’s an interesting red blend from Argentina that popped up in my Costco for $14.99. The name Catena caught my eye as they are a producer of fine Mendoza Malbec and many other reds that I’ve enjoyed quite frequently. This bottle pays homage to the family’s grandfather, Don Domingo Vicente Catena, who was known for …

2017 Kirkland Signature Malbec Mendoza

Another new label for the Kirkland Malbec; here’s the last one; I kind of like them both.  I really just wish the juice inside would improve a bit though.  This is one Kirkland wine offering that I’ve never really connected with as much as I hoped. This is also one of those bottles that’s really …
