Greg Norman Malbec 2009

Unlike many successful professional athletes Greg Norman, the golf champion, invested his winnings wisely, establishing a commercial empire that encompasses items as diverse as haberdashery and wine. In the latter category he acquired vineyards first in his native Australia, then in CA, later in Argentina. As is the case with all celebrity products, part of the price one pays is for the name, so his wines aren't cheap. This Argentine Malbec is about average for the breed, with predominant red berry flavors, some plum, and a bit of vanilla. On sale at $9.99, the price is below list to be sure, but can still be bought for two dollars less elsewhere.
