I picked this bottle of Malbec at Whole Foods for 10.99, I picked it up thinking that I would share a glass with my siblings and mom on my birthday. I liked the bottle and I was looking forward to writing a review.
Well as usual when anything is planned at my mom's house, things just don't go as planned. My dad was in the city with his siblings, my son's nap was interrupted and so he was in a stellar mood. My mom got an unexpected visitor and my brother ran late. Overall though it didn't matter. I was still getting to enjoy a glass of wine with my sister, while things slowly fell into place.
The wine was delicious. The notes of berries were sweet and pronounced. It was smooth and tasty. I was so surprised by how good it was, that I considered sharing with my mom's unexpected visitor. A not so favorite member of our extended family. Luckily, my siblings were there to talk me down from my generous notations.
It was a happy 35th birthday. I will enjoy this wine again. If you see it in the wine section, I would be shocked if you didn't find it delightful.
