Wine Review: 2015 Malbec, Black Box

img_0781

 

I keep thinking that wine from Argentina should be better than it is.

I mean, this Malbec from Black Box isn’t bad. To the contrary, it’s far better than the previous bottle of Argentinean wine that I bought, but it’s not particularly special either. I wouldn’t walk a mile for a Camel if you know what I mean.

It’s a solid glass of “ok”.  Xavier and I enjoyed it while binge watching Supernatural.

A little tangy, a little fruity, pleasant finish, woody but not overtly oak. You could certainly do worse for the price. On the other hand, you could also do better.

This Cab is a little thin but it’s not bad. Cab from Chile is usually a good thing and this brew from Black Box is no exception.

Very smooth with notes of vanilla, chocolate, and oak. Pairs up nicely with just about any kind of dinner. We had it with Chicken Tikka Masala one night and pork chops on another night.

A nice wine to keep on hand during the week, I would feel confident serving it to my friends should anyone drop by demanding a taste of the grape.

It’ll getcha by until the weekend.

Hold on to your hat, friends. This one is good, really good.

Xavier and I didn’t mean to kill the whole the box in 3 days. Personally, I blame the box. I mean none of this would’ve happened if it weren’t there in the first place.

In looking back at my notes, I wrote exactly this: “tall glass of chocolate milk”.

Xavier said, “a glass of Johnny Walker because it’s Dyn-o-mite”. Interpret as you will.

Plum, blueberry, chocolate, vanilla..  Finish is smooth like silk.

One of the very best boxed wines we’ve tried thus far.

And check out how beautiful it is in the candlelight.
