Luis Segundo Correas "Valle Las Acequias" Malbec "Oak", Mendoza 2005

Deep red.

Vinturi - integrated, deep nose of (slightly candied) black raspberry/cherry, earth/hazelnut liqueur.

Nice textural sweetness that is countered by fine acid/tannin synergy. Intensely flavored, but never heavy. Flows very nicely, and has surprising length. I'm not sure what this should really sell for, but this may be the stupidest value in refined wine I've ever seen. RFG.

$12. Satisfying action even for serious winos.
