Bodega Septima Malbec, 2006
The wineries of Argentina have been pumping out great Malbec wines for decades. This Bodegas Septima Malmec represents a great "value" red wine from Mendoza. I bought this wine at Esquin Wine Merchants, in Seattle, for about $7. The wine has a deep, dark purple and black color that is almost opaque. On the nose there is dark berries, cherries, vanilla and cheese. This is a medium to full-bodied wine with dark berry and spice flavors with ample tannins to coat the mouth. There is enough complexity and length on the finish to make this a "cut above" your average $7 wine. Enjoy this wine with a flat iron steak or a blue cheese burger!
