Wine Details

Lot 358 Malbec has juicy texture and lush fruit flavor, but is most lovable for its drinkability. Violet in color, with flavor aromas of black cherry and plum that carry through to the palate. There is a nice richness, it is very balanced, not an over-the-top style. It has a long and lovely finish with firm tannins. You could age a couple years, but why bother when its drinking so well now.

Cam Confidential

This Malbec was made with our longtime producer partner in Mendoza. We have worked together now for five years, and our relationship continues to deepen with each release. 2011 was an epic vintage in Luján de Cuyo and the neighboring Valle de Uco. We identified vineyard blocks in both valleys that reveal the sheer power and balance for which Malbec is famous. If you enjoyed Lots 258 and 275, this wine will stop you in your tracks.

I am of the belief that one should be able to get a terrific Malbec for a reasonable price due to the difference between the US dollar and the Argentine Dollar. reasonable to me is $10 - 15 a bottle.
I found this Malbec to be quite average, and if it was selling for $10.00 I would call it a value. Otherwise, it is just another average Malbec, nothing special.

I have been on the lookout for Mendoza cabs for as long as I have liked red wine and I would say this is right up there in terms of quality. Definitely comparable to Trapiche and Norton, other easily findable Malbecs that I would consider to be of equal value.

This is a reserved, "old world" type Malbec. The flavors are muted and will not overpower a meal. Potentially, a wonderful accompaniment to Italian/Provencal fare.

Beautiful, red-violet color in the glass. Plum and sage on the nose.

There is such restraint to the wine on the palate. It maintains a steady pulse of plum and black cherry. There is a top note of purple sage.

The abrupt finish is disappointing, but not unexpected, as this wine does not envelop the palate. This is one of those wines that demands to be served with food; on its own, it falls a bit flat.

Very nice Malbec. I would buy this again as a nice every day wine. At 10, it was the right price too.

Found this on special (won't say the price, still makes me cry) and really enjoyed it - but sad that upon returning to the store, the cases and cases of this wine were all gone. You snooze you lose, I guess. Now on to the wine, very complex on the nose and needs a little time to open up. There was a smokiness to the wine that I just couldn't place, tried to enhance it with food and I think I scared it away. If you can find this for under $10, buy a case...otherwise it's still definitely worth the purchase to enjoy with a good spicy meal. I'll give it 4 stars, because I don't grade wine on a price curve...but definitely a great value.

Very deep brilliant violet color. Pleasant cherry aroma with a nice light oak detected. The taste has a nice spice layer and richness to it. The finish is pleasant. Great with a meal, but I still enjoyed it on its own. A really nice value.

My wife and I are both Malbec lovers, and this is a great Malbec for the price. Plenty of flavor and smoothness, Malbec is one of Cameron's consistently good varietals, and this is no exception.
