I love a good Malbec, especially when we're talking about quality examples under $10. We've enjoyed this particular wine for many vintages, so today we're updating our review to the 2016.
The 2016 Santa Julia Plus Malbec begins with pleasant aromas of plum, ripe fruit, spice and perfumed floral notes. Tasting the balanced, medium to full-bodied wine shows lots of blackberry and plum flavors in this very fruity, and very tasty, wine. It also features a really nice silky texture and mouthfeel. The wine ends with a bit of spice along with lingering blackberry and chocolate notes that go on for quite a long time. On top of all that the wine seems to get even better with some air as the spice becomes a bit more prominent. Excellent!
