Home Wine Regions Argentine Wine Diseño Malbec

Sometimes I search and search, but can’t find any background info on a wine to share with you all.  I combed through the results on my favorite wine search engine, Able Grape, and there was nothing enlightening to be found.  Even the website listed on the bottle doesn’t seem to be working.  All I have to give you is my review, and maybe that’s all you want anyway.

Simply put, this is a big, big wine and an outstanding value.  It has a sappy, black cherry and blackberry nose woven with bright perfumed accents. The palate is full and fruity, with slightly jammy blackberry and plum flavors.  There’s a little cocoa on the finish, which is relatively short.  I’d like it if it had a touch more tannin, but it’s still a great wine at this price!  Actually, for the price it’s exceptional!!

As for pairing, this would be great with barbecue or grilled meats, as well as the potato dish you have along with those foods.

  1. I had this wine a couple of years ago on the recommendation of a buyer at a wine store/bar I was visiting for the first time. I, too, loved it. Oddly, I have not tried it since. Do you think it’s true? So much wine, so little time?

  2. Nice design of the label though. If you want more terroir information send me the INV number tha´s somewhere on the bottle and i´ll give it back to you from Argentina

  3. Hi Miguel. The UPC on this one is 081434100108, if that helps. The bottle is long gone, so there’s no other info I could give you on this one.
