Review: 2013 Tapiz Malbec

I got this Malbec at the BevMo 5 cent wine sale. I’ve purchased it a couple times, so I definitely keep coming back.

It’s sour, tart and has a long finish. The bottle says it ends with a violety flavor–a common characteristic of some Malbecs, but I didn’t taste the flowery perfume. To me, it smelled and tasted like black cherry and a lot of it. It’s a full-throttle kind of wine, so you taste a lot of fruit at the outset and all the way through.
