Altos Las Hormigas, Malbec, Mendoza, 2008, $10.99

| Uncategorized

This is a great introduction to Malbec– rich flavors of black berry fruit, mulberry and black cherry along with a bit of licorice and spice. The new vintage was just released, and to promote it, the distributor offered a deal. The wine usually sells for $2 more per bottle, so now is the time to buy this one by the case. Save the $2 from the distributor, plus another 10% for the case and 6% on tax. That makes this wine just $9.89 a bottle. You will be hard-pressed to find a tastier Malbec for less than $12.99.

Malbec is the perfect match for red meats off the grill. Argentina is, after all, the land of abundant grass-fed cattle.
