Emiliana, 'Adobe', Malbec, 2018, Casablanca Valley, Chile


For the price this is very good Malbec indeed. It's very smooth, full is earthy spice and has a nice structure and finish. It's very hard to find another Malbec that can beat this one at the price point. For someone looking for affordable everyday Malbec, this is a go to. It's also marginally lighter bodied than the Argentinian styles.
