Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bill3806 A very nice red wine..
A buddy came back from Argentina last year and raved about a nice Malbec 'table' wine he and his wife enjoyed while touring the country.. Not being a world traveller or sophisticated in such things, I decided to try a bottle of Maipe Malbec.
It was a nice, smooth tasting mid range red that went well with Gruyere cheese, pepper crusted roast beef tenderloin or filet Mignon..

I'm not a wine snob. I love wine, but I'm not well-versed in all the seemingly snooty ways of describing wines. But I'll give it a go as a complete noob.
This wine sits lightly on your tongue with notes of cherry and blackberry but finishes surprisingly strong with a hint of chocolate and a clean, peppery snap.
Ok. I'll leave that to the connoisseurs and sommeliers. Overall, I love this wine. It was recommended at a restaurant, and I haven't regretted it. I'm one of those that eschews the idea that certain wines go with certain foods as a rule, and opt to drink what I like. Sure, I understand they can enhance things, but to me, the overall pleasure of drinking a good wine wins out. This one, especially for the price, is a good buy. I currently have a bottle of the reserve set aside to mellow out.
