2006 Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Mendoza, Vineyard Selection Reserva

This’ll be  quickie… I’m a BUSY boy these days.

I had it the other night. I really liked it, but wasn’t totally in love with it. It may be a Malbec thing for me. I can’t say I’ve ever had one that knocked my socks off.

It had a great dark cherry syrup edge to the felt tip marker and long earthy finish, which while not bringing love certainly caused a little crush.

With some nice meat or cheese, I think this would come alive. The Spectator gave it 92 points.

$32.95 at LDB stores here in BC.
