1Malbec

For some reason, I've been on a big Malbec kick lately. The best I've had to date was a true Argentinian from Luca (bought at BevMo). It was an '05, I think.

I have a Californian Malbec from Francis Coppola that I'm going to try soon.

Anyone know of any other noteworthy examples?

Sup Ro,

Try this link:

You can see the other malbecs that ppl have reviewed on vinquire.com. Not sure any of them look amazing, but it's worth a shot.

And it looks like they're all under $20!

Bonneau 2005 Malbec Napa Valley.

Huge! Really one of the biggest wines I've ever had. With a structure like a Barolo that takes hours to unwind from under a boatload of dense chocolatey tannin. Blow your mind Malbec made from sources that usually go to Dominus (that's a secret though). $65 or so from the winery. Mailing list only, but you could probably coaxe a bottle out of them if you call. Like a Cahors but with more red fruit. Really, get a bottle of this before you try anything else, it will give you an excellent point of refference to judge other Malbec by. Make sure you decant it at least 4 hours ahead of time, better yet open it the day before.
