Vina San Esteban Malbec Reserva 2008
This bottle could be the source of endless confusion as there is a vineyard by that name (owned by the same people?) in Chile that produces Malbec. This, however, is the Argentine version, from the Mendoza valley. It's a nice enough wine, with blackberry, cherry and a jammy chocolate flavor and an even aftertaste. But, to noone's surprise, surely, it's greatly overpriced at $9.99, being available for three dollars less in N.J. & N.Y.
