Some of the best red wines at the best price come from Argentina. I picked up the Graffigna Centenario Malbec Reserve 2010 wine recently at our local wine store when I was looking for a good red for under $15. I have pretty good luck with Argentinean wines and saw this reserve wine on sale for about $10 so I gave it a try. The wine has a deep red to black color with blackberry, sweet and caramel nose. This wine needs to be decanted to open up. Since we sometimes don’t decide what we are going to drink until the last minute (poor planning) we accelerate the decanting process by pouring wine through an aerator into a decanter. This usually brings out the flavors in the wine so it is ready to drink with a little swirl of the glass. Of course, as time passes the wine gets better. From the first taste the wine has a very broad balanced flavor profile with a earthy front and blueberry, dark cherry and oak flavors that are layered. There are plentiful tannins that support the finish with dark fruit flavors. Simply, this is a very good red wine that can stand up to the competition that is twice the cost and has become a regular selection at our home.
