2010 Ave Malbec

I like to think of Malbec as a solid all around wine. If you’re in the mood for red but don’t know what you want Malbec would probably work. It doesn’t wow me but it doesn’t often disappoint. While they do grow malbec in France, most malbec you’ll find in the store is from Argentina.

We drank this 2010 bottle of Ave last night with breaded pork chops and mashed potatoes. It was only $14 but wasn’t anything special, I don’t think I’d buy it again…it was just…flat.

MobyGrape: 76. I have no problem with this wine, partly because it drinks like it’s nothing at all.  I can’t find any discernable flavor to make a comment on.  It’s kind of like the person you get stuck talking to in the hall at work.  It’s not that they’re a bad person, but they’re just not that interesting, and you know the conversation is going to continue for 750 mL of bland filler with some forced laughter and an awkward ending where you pretend to be late for a meeting.

colonelgrape: 74. Yawn…Moby nailed it.
