As a malbec fan, I was somewhat disappointed by Lot 642. While flavorful at first, the wine lacked the robustness and extended follow-through that I associate with malbec. The fruit was light and the finish was lacking, more like an ok pinot noir than a typical malbec. While readily drinkable, there are other lots I prefer.
Great roasted coffee blueberry nose. Wonderful on pallet with nice dark fruit and long finish.
Excellent! Recommend and would buy again.
I just opened the bottle a few days ago. Excellent Malbec! Smooth. Sorry to see it's out of stock. Would like to see more Argentine wines offered.
Good everyday type of Malbec
Very good wine, great price. Perhaps someday CH can get his hands on a Malbec like the Argentinian Reserves!
This is first experience with the Malbec and your description
fits it to a T, Thanks
More Fruit than Depth
We preferred the Lot 571 Malbec over Lot 642, but it was still an enjoyable drink. Tasted more of berry than anything else. Paired it with chocolate so it may have been better with a meal but at $15 it was a value buy.
I bought a couple of these with my last case because I have a friend who loves Malbec that comes by often. But I will also order for myself going forward!
A terrific value!
Very elegant wine for the price. Be sure to decant for a few hours!
We loved this wine! Smooth and delicious. Bought two cases and glad I did because it is now out of stock.
Highly recommended by CH and well worth it
I am a fan of Malbec, and this wine does not disappoint. Wonderful cherry notes, beautiful color, and goes well with meat pastas and burgers.
