Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Reserve, Mendoza Argentina 1999

Argentina has been putting out many good values in the Malbec category but this is one of the heavy-hitters. Drinking very well right now, this Malbec reserve is showy and explosive with plenty of chewy fruit and spice. The palate is full of fat flavors of dried plum, rose pedal, tobacco and new oak. Razor sharp black currant flavors create a thick feeling in the mouth. This wonderful wine finishes with black pepper and age-worthy tannins. I don’t want to be quoted but….. yummy! $22 – CG
