Luigi Bosca Finca la Linda Malbec 2005 Wine Review (NW)
Blackberry and currants on the nose
Juicy palate of rich fruit
Finishes with berries and dark chocolate
The Malbecs from Argentina can be dark and powerful. This one has those qualities, although somewhat simple in composition, at a fair price of $11 or so. In this price range they tend to be simple, but they often carry a nice flavor profile that compliments hearty food.
Overall, the prices of Malbecs are on the rise and I'm often surprised to see wines I bought just five year ago at $12 now selling at $18. Hopefully, the quality uptick will continue because they are nearly can't miss in this price range.
Raise a glass!
