looking for a fruit forward malbec in the under $15 price point? i had this one with the comely brunette and our good friend, brooklyn, with a filet mignon potato and salad meal. the wine sells for about $12 and has a nose of blackberry and a little spice and earth. the palate was full of ripe blackberry and a little bite of peppery spice. the spicy bite did ease after the wine opened up, allowing more fruit flavor to come through. i got a little earthy note in the finish as well. medium tannins and a nice finish. good with steak or other grilled meats or pasta dishes.
