Vina Cobos Malbec ‘Felino’ 2010

MENDOZA | ARGENTINA | $19

Smoky plum with dark berries and black currants supported by muscular low notes of tobacco, charcoal and compost and faint hints of herbs. A straightforward medium-bodied wine, accessible but slightly wild. A bespectacled, competent mid-manager, seemingly content with his place in the world, yet there is controlled ambition within. A great value and a good wine. (Reviewed 1/21/12)

Durigutti Malbec 2008

MENDOZA | ARGENTINA | $14

Blackberry and boysenberry fruit, camphor and cedar on the nose, and a dry tannin finish. Enjoyable yet unremarkable. A good wine. (Reviewed 12/14/10)
