Malbec is the new merlot, elbowing its way onto wine lists and into retail shops. This incredible example smells like luscious raspberry jam youíd spread on bread. This impressive medium-bodied wine has a lot going on ñ layers of blackberry, black licorice, bittersweet chocolate, black coffee, cranberry, velvety oakiness and spicy black pepper. Excellent acidity with a rich, tongue-pleasing mouthfeel. Sw=2. $18. 5 stars.
