93 KRUTZ FAMILY CELLARS
2010 Malbec
Krupp Vineyard - Napa Valley $55
Deep aromas of blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, blueberry and plum, with light offerings of violets, fennel, minerals and cedary oak. Canít say this is terribly varietal, but itís a very well made, well-balanced wine with rich flavors and a long, rounding tannin finish.

90 WISE VILLA WINERY
2013 Malbec
Lodi $34.77
Much like the 2013 chardonnay, this is a heavily-oaked wine, so much so that you donít really smell or taste the classic Malbec fruit and spice. The wine is tasty, just not for those who want more fruit than oak. (tasted 4/15/15)
