This was a Wall Street Journal Wine Club pick, this was from our last case and I have our membership on hold since we have close to 50 bottles right now and may end up with some leftover from the wedding. Scott has put me on a wine buying moratorium Now, that doesn’t mean we aren’t drinking it! We just don’t have any more room for bottles. That won’t last long.
The Casa Alta Piedra Malbec Merlot was pretty good, a bit young but with strong notes of berry and spice. Very smooth and the blend of malbec and merlot isn’t something I have seen a lot of. Retail for around $15 a bottle, it feels like a good everyday wine. Probably not special occasion but good for a party with many different palates.
