Conquista Malbec 2008

Member Review by GrantC:

There's nothing overtly offensive here, but I find it hard to recommend this wine for any reason. I'm having trouble even finding a distinguishing characteristic to write about. I think it's just a little too acidic, without enough flavor to balance it out. I love malbec, and this wine did almost nothing for me.

definite tannins, paired well with food, especially chocolate.

It's a ten dollar bottle of wine. But the Malbec phenom in Argentina continues to make the ten spot a good investment. No, this wine won't out-compete your best Bordeaux, but perhaps that was never its fate. Good for every day- nothing offensive, and no surprises. Solid example of the genre.

Smoked bacon nose with a hint of tobacco. Very fruity for a Malbec, with lots of plum and without the leathery smell and taste. Assertive tannins, but not too much to overwhelm food.

Very light and fruity. Great value. It's rich smokiness is lost with food.

Just didn't think this was a particularly good representative of Malbec. Perhaps our bottle was off, but I didn't find this fruity nor aromatic. Someone mentioned the definite tannins, and I found them overwhelming, which was not what I was looking for.

This red wine from Mendoza hits all the right notes. An aromatic cherry nose and big round tannins make this a great entry-level Malbec.
