Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva 2012
2012 was a great growing season in Argentina, so it's no surprise that this red Mendoza surpasses even the '09 that I liked a lot. Although, obviously, it's young, it exhibits a remarkably smooth blend of its inherent red fruit and chocolate flavors. The price has gone up to $9.99, but it's worth that. My advice is to put down a few bottles of this vintage, it will only get better.
