    He said: Ruby red color. Light raspberry aromas. Smooth, plum and dark fruit taste and a medium-long, mild, somewhat dry finish. Not bad Malbec, but clearly a little thin and lacking in both bouquet and taste. At $14.99 it would be a marginal recommendation at best.

    She said: First taste was very disappointing perhaps because of the tomatoes. I should have been less judgmental as once I finished my dinner and was sipping the wine I found that the aroma was good with ripe dark fruit scents. With medium body and medium-long dry finish this wine was OK but not great. There was a hint of sourness and it’s a little rough so I would not buy it again.
