Bodega San Telmo Malbec 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Berries on the nose
Dry on the palate
Peppery finish

This wine is very simple. There's really not much there, even for a $7 wine. In fact, it hardly tastes like Malbec at all. It could pass for a cheap Australian Shiraz or a cheap Cote du Rhone.

Malbec from Argentina is still a bargain varietal. There are a number of good wines available for under $10 and I was hoping this would be one of them. For real Malbec taste, though, grab something different. And raise a glass!
