High Note "Elevated" 2007 Malbec

More purple passion from the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina. Rich blackberry and black cherry flavors with a nice spice on the finish. Slightly dry. Some advice: drink it all on the first night. As it's the third night this bottle has been opened, it's not as good as night one. A great introductory Malbec wine, very easy drinking.

This Malbec was $12 at Sam's Wine & appeared high on their 100 best wines of 2008 list. What I don't like to see is that Sam's is one of the most expensive places for this bottle - it can be found for $9 or $10 several places out there.

This is the first Malbec Wine I ever tasted and now I'm hooked! I agree though it does taste best if you drink it all in the night it is opened.
