2008 Bodega Belgrano Malbec – Mendoza Argentina

“It’s a Head Snapper”   Well, that is what it says on the label, which is why I picked up the bottle.   I can’t say I agree, but this is an easy drinking, crowd pleasing, candy-esque Malbec.   Spicy, candied fruit on the nose.   The smell reminds me of raspberry fruit snacks that are not made of real fruit.   Mouthfeel is very juicy and pretty enjoyable.    The finish is a bit muted but you still get some sweet fruit.   This would be a great wine to bring to a friend as a present if you are looking for a wine that is easy to drink and has a pretty label.   It is tasty, not complex.
