Red Truck California Red Wine, 2006

The Red Truck California Red is a fairly dry, full-bodied red wine that has both marked acidity and medium tannins. The flavors up front are dominated by the same berries that appear in the nose then finishes dry with a bit of pepper. There is also a bit of smoke in there plus something akin to Worcestershire sauce. This Red Truck California Red works unusually well cold for such a dry wine which will probably make it appealing during warm weather and outdoor cooking.

 
 
Navarro Correas Coleccion Privada Malbec 2007

The 2007 Navarro Correas Coleccion Privada Malbec is full bodied, but perhaps just a bit thinner than other Malbecs tend to be. The flavors are strong in plums and cherries accompanied by strong - almost astringent - tannins. The finish is long but flavorful and pleasant. You can enjoy strong, flavorful, semi-hard cheeses like swiss or sharp cheddar with the 2007 Navarro Correas Coleccion Privada Malbec. Aged hard cheeses, like parmesan and gouda, can be especially good because the Malbec brings out more of their flavors.

 
 
Riunite Lambrusco

With the right glass, the Riunite Lambrusco produces a strong, almost overwhelming aroma of berries - probably strawberries, but perhaps a more generic mixture of blackberries and raspberries. Riunite Lambrusco has a fairly simple taste, much sweeter than most red wines with weak tannins and flavors of cherry, berry, and perhaps a little plum. Red wines are typically served warmer, but Riunite Lambrusco is best served very cold.

 
 
Crios de Susana Balbo Malbec 2007

The flavors of the Crios de Susana Balbo 2007 Malbec are dominated by berries, cherries, some smoke, and even perhaps something like a cigar. Although relatively moderate in strength, the flavors here are a bit stronger than some other Malbecs you might find.

 
 
Terrazas de los Andes Reserva Malbec 2006

The rich flavors of the Terrazas de los Andes Reserva 2006 include the fruits and berries you would expect in a Malbec from Argentina, but it also has hints of leather around the edges as well as a nice spicy, tangy finish. This a medium to full bodied wine with medium, round tannins and a crisp acidity which produces the nice finish. Overall the Reserva Malbec is a nicely balanced wine that is worth drinking in a variety of circumstances.
