Altos Las Hormigas Malbec 2007

anewton | Aug 30, 200806:56 PM     3

Enjoying this tonight after opening it two nights ago. Surprisingly for an inexpensive Argentinian wine, this wine really shines two days post-opening.

Has notes on palate of lead pencil, beef carpaccio, boysenberry, blackberry, a hint of vanilla from the oak.

Great little wine for $15 in CAN (prob $13 in US?) My house red for fall 2009?

The reserve 2006 bottling from same winery is really outstanding, but needs at least 5 years cellaring time before even BEGINNING to peak.
