Falling Star Merlot/Malbec 2008 wine review by (PB)
This is a "Whole Foods" wine from Cuyo Argentina produced by the solid wine makers at Trapiche. The bouquet of this wine is the best part with fruity, spicy almost perfumy aromas. It is all in the dumper from there.
Palate--awkward, edgy, bitter, flawed and PLONK. I suggested my wife make Sangria out of it. This is a $6 wine which is no excuse. This falling star fell out of favor from the get go. Avoid it, unless you're making Sangria.
