Weekly Wine – Misterio

7 Aug

SONY DSCMisterio Malbec
2012
Argentina
750ml
13.5% ABV
$8.95 (LCBO)

This could just be a four word review — I like this wine. I really do. I like the Malbec grape. It has this nice spicy quality to it. There is no aftertaste. There are no lingering flavours that spoil the experience of drinking this wine. It is a simple wine with very little complexity. A fine drinking wine if you will.
It is a damn sight better than the Misterio Cabernet Sauvignon I wrote about on the 29th of May. But I liked that wine too. This one is better. I like the spiciness of this wine. It has a sharp distinct bite on the tongue as one drinks it. It is not unpleasant and tells you that you are consuming something interesting.
It is inexpensive and most people in Ontario know that fact since we all shop at the LCBO. No one has ever brought this wine when we host people because of the price point. You don’t want to bring “cheap” wine. But…If it was five bucks more people would bring it because it would be more respectable as a gift. The wine would be the same. But don’t raise the price please. I like it the way it is.
