Viña Maipu Malbec Roble 2008 Argentina
From the Andes foothills in Mendoza, Argentina, this Malbec shows deep hues of blackberry, bold aromas of raspberry with resinous accents of blue fruits. On the palate ribbons of raspberry pie, prunes, and cassis blending nicely to finish with sexy accents of spices and dried fruits, reminding me that fall is here. A great value for about $15.
Wine & Spirits panels tasted 2,195 wines that sell for $15 or less. Among these, the panels chose the 100 wines that offer the best quality-price ratio (the top values). The Vina Maipu was one of five Argentinian wines among the "100 Top Values of the Year"
