"A beautiful red here with light chocolate, berry and nutmeg character. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. All here. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, and petit verdot. Drink now."

Rich, tobacco and leather, long lasting finish - Add a big glass, Manchego cheese, olives and thin prosciutto slices.... you do not need anything else to feel wealthy...

Best $12 bottle of wine out there. - This is a fine example of why sometimes blends can be such terrific wines. Strong and dry. Well balanced and an extraordinary purchase.

Do Yourself a Favor and Get Some of This Spectacular Value - This blend take's the cake for big balanced body, fruit, acid, and minerality. It's got nose. It's got mouth-filling yumminess. It's got great intensity, a fine complexity, and a generous finish. At $24 with a California label, or at $40 with a French one you'd be buying it by the case. Don't let the Mendoza Malbec stop you now. Think of it as a New World Bordeaux blend. You're gonna love it.

Truly good! - For this price point this wine is great! Balanced but with distinct characteristics that are not found at this $$ Cuvée for real

Great wine for the price - I don't know or care about the point system but I love this wine. I typically buy $17 - $25 cabs and am always looking for a good drinking wine at a bargain price and this is it.

Better on the second try - My first impression of this wine was that it's just another big red and not very complex. One day later I tried it again and had a totally different experience: deep, dark and lush, hints of varnish on the nose, The more I tasted it the more I liked it.

Good price for a rich red - Surprised by the full tannins flavor for the inexpensive red, paired well with a skirt steak

Don't think its a James Suckling 94pt wine - Thought it was just an average wine and not a 94pt wine
