Overview Malbec is all the rage these days among casual drinkers, and it’s easy to see why—this wine is nothing if not likeable. Reliable bargains and decent at pairing with most meats, these wines have plenty of New World fruit without the worst excesses of Australian Shiraz and its kin. Los Cardos’ effort lives up to the grape’s reputation, delivering ripe berries and chocolate with an easygoing mouthfeel.

Nose Our blind tasters picked out cherry, chocolate, and pepper.

Mouth It’s fairly complex for such an easy-drinking wine, with a bit of pleasant sourness and even more fruit.
