Susana_balbo_malbec_2003

My buddy Albert and I opened a stellar bottle of Malbec to celebrate a big business deal. This wine was a Superstar. Worth every penny of the $22 price tag. I'll let the Wine Spectator review describe it perfectly: "2003 Susana Balbo Malbec: 90 Points. Very ripe, this gushes with blackberry, boysenberry and fig fruit, along with mineral, briar and toast notes. Flashy and fruit-driven, but has structure and length too. Well done."
