    Late to the party, but one of my favorite malbec is the Punto Final from argentina…

  • bobbytiger

    The wines are what theyn are Gary.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    Was hoping that the Susana Balbo would score higher, as I love her Torrontes. But……..
    QOTD: The Luigi Bosca Reserva is pretty good, and,
    for the bucks, the Alamos Malbec is not too bad.

    Funny episode.. your face at the end was priceless.

    QOTD – I think I'm one of the minority that don't love Malbec.. I've had some ok ones, but nothing has ever wowed me.

  • ummright!

    Wow,a dejected looking Gary V!

    Yeah, I am not a Malbec lover. I don't get the hype these wines receive, but hey, that's okay!

  • Don't blame the format. We love the BB. Bring the double blinds!!!

    QOTD. I've had some interesting Loire Malbecs or Cot as they call them…

  • JayZee13

    Wow! Three in a row. Well, at least they were short! 😉

    QOTD: I'm not really a big fan of the Argentinian Malbecs. I prefer Cahors from southern France.

    QOTD: Catena

  • CigarAdam

    No need for an appology Gary, I like the format. It really lets you be honest about the vino. Cheers!
