Luigi Bosca 2006 "La Linda" Lujan de Cuyo Mendoza Malbec ($9.99)
Very dark garnet, clear reddish-violet edge. Fruit-forward aromas, black and red cherries. Flavors consistent with the nose, well structured with tart acidity, with smooth tannins becoming more evident in the finish. U.S. importer: Atlas Imports Inc., Waterford, Mich. (May 5, 2008)
FOOD MATCH: Malbec is a natural with red meat, and it also goes well with pizza and with the same kind of pasta dishes that would stereotypically call for Chianti. It was fine with spaghetti topped with fresh-tomato sauce and finely diced leftover steak.
VALUE: A fine value at the $10 point.
WHEN TO DRINK: Ready to drink, and that fresh, fruit-forward character won't last forever. It should hold for a year or two, but I'd enjoy it sooner rather than later.
