Bodega Norton-Reserva-Malbec-Mendoza-Argentina-2006-$11.99-A nose of spiced dark fruit, dark in color.  Plum, raspberry, toast, spice, good and smooth, if you have never tried a Malbec, start with this one.          RP-90        WS-89        CR-4        Good with chicken, pasta, ribs.

Bodega Renacer-Punto Final-Reserva-Malbec-Mendoza-Argentina-2005-$13.25-Smooth nose of dark fruit, dark ruby color.  Pleasant mouth feel, good fruit, spice, tannins, unfiltered so decant if necessary.  A very good Malbec.          WS-89       RP-88          CR-4      Good with chicken, steak, pasta.

Domaine Vistalba-Trilogie-Lujan De Cuyo-Mabec-Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon-Mendoza-Argentina-2007-$6.99-I had no idea what to expect from this wine, I find Argentina wines a little hit or miss.  The nose was bold, juicy dark fruit, great rich deep color.  I was amazed how great this wine tasted, big bold but smooth, and as label stated, elegant wine with a great complexity. A no brainer to pick up a case..which is what I plan to do.        NR      CR-4    Good with pizza, pasta.

Fincas Don Martino-Martino-Old Vine-Malbec-Argentina-2004-$13.99-I enjoy trying wines from different countries, had not had one from Argentina in awhile so I was glad after I tried it that I picked a good one.  Nice nose of sweet fruit, ruby color, hints of vanilla and chocolate with smooth tannins.  It was a very enjoyable drinking wine, great value and since it was a 2004 it was ready to drink now. If you have not tried Malbec, then I recommend you start with this one.          WS-84         CR-4    Good with steaks, ribs, pasta.

INV E-Bodegas Goulart-Reserva-Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon-Lujan de Cuyo-Mendoza-Argentina-2007-$14.98-A big fruit nose of spice and plum, dark in color.  Plum, fig, toasty notes, a good complex wine for it’s price.           RP-88        WS-88         CR-4      Good with chicken, pasta, veal.
