Wine Review: Zolo Malbec Gaucho Select 2008 – $16.04 for 2!

Zolo Malbec Gaucho Select 2008

The deals roll on at the BevMo 5¢ Wine Sale! Today we’re looking at the Zolo Malbec Gaucho Select 2008, a wine on the verge of greatness from the Mendoza region of Argentina.

Good News: Deep dark red color is the first thing that you will notice. Nothing inky like a Petite Sirah, but certainly darker than many of the reds we have reviewed here; the Zolo Malbec looks like a Cabernet. Take a whiff and you will get TONS of dark red fruit: ripe bing cherries, raspberries and even some plums. The tannins are very pronounced and hit the back of your tongue immediately. Good fruit: those ripe cherries and the plums have been stewed to create a fascinating, silky and full-bodied juice. Fantastic finish that lingers without cranking up the heat. All of this delicious flavor is odd for such a young, young wine, but still, we can’t deny that it’s there. Store it if you like, but you can definitely drink it now. Absolutely stellar.

With Food: RED MEAT ONLY. Red sauce won’t bring enough to the table for this one. Steak, lamb or game. BBQ it if you can, but it’s not necessary. I also wouldn’t suggest cheese for this either. Only red meat. One more time….RED MEAT ONLY.

$16.04 for 2 bottles at the BevMo 5¢ Wine Sale!

$8.99 after the sale is over at Shop Rite Liquors.
