Prosperity Red Wine ($6.79)
This Argentine Malbec is shipped to the U.S. in bulk to be bottled and labeled in California. Very dark garnet in color, it offers simple and plummy black fruit aromas with hints of spice. Simple but enjoyable in flavor, ripe plums with ample acidity to balance. US Importer: Prosperity Wines (Firestone), Los Olivos, Calif. (Jan 22, 2003)
FOOD MATCH: Made a fine match, as Argentine Malbec generally does, with a hot pizza, this one topped with black olives and cheese.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
