Opinion: I'd warn friends about this.
Other Comments: This is palate-scalding proof that not every winery is capable of capitalizing on the Malbec stampede. Begins with a nose redolent of flaming plastic. That burns off to a mouth full of medicine-like harshness with tincture of benzoin overtones. The back label says "Imported and bottled by..." which means it probably arrived in a big bladder. Should leave the same way. I don't remember ever spending $9.99 this foolishly.
