Dona Paula 2012 Malbec, Los Cardos, Mendoza
Always a solid value, this Los Cardos Malbec from Dona Paula is a fresh, fruit-forward expression of Argentine Malbec. Grapes are sourced from their own estate vineyards high up (3,400 feet above sea level) in the Uco Valley and the Lujan de Cuyo. The grapes are de-stemmed and cold soaked to preserve the primary aromas. Extended maceration adds to the texture and rounds out the tannins. It shows big aromas of berry fruit and roasted nuts. The palate is firm but zesty with with bright berry, black tea and mineral flavors. A hint of toast comes up on the lingering finish. Best Buy Alert!

        Comments about Dona Paula 2012 Malbec, Los Cardos, Mendoza:

        I have been off of Malbecs as of late, but this one caught me by surprise. Classic Mendoza Malbec character, but lots of elegance and structure to go along with the big, dark fruit and spice. A no brainer everyday wine...

            We just ordered two more cases for our family. If you account for the great price, I would give it a five!
            We had several guests and all raved about it.

                Comments about Dona Paula 2012 Malbec, Los Cardos, Mendoza:

                Very sour, not sweet at all. A hand full of people I let taste could not believe how bad it taste. This is my opinion and do not intend to let my view stop others from trying this wine. One person told me, they liked sour wine, however, they did not try any of this wine. Also, I am not a wine expert. Wine Express did replace my order --free--and I appreciate the time and effort they took to please me. Wine express stands behind their products and this speaks volumes for this company.
