Malbec, Sol Alto 05'

Naked Wine Review 9
Wine: Malbec
Vintage: 05'
Producer: Sol Alto 
Region: Argentina
Price: 9.00
Date tasted: 3/25/08
Place tasted: Sitting in the kitchen sink...naked.
Served with: Spaghetti n' Meatballs, garlic bread, the best!  And also a Posh Chocolate tear,so the best! 
Appearance: Deep cherry red with candy apple flashes of light
taste: Bold blast of cherry and ripe red fruits wrapped up in a warm carmel blanket.
Bouquet: Has the scent of a candy store near a head shop on a hot summer day.
Balance: Thick, heavy, and viscous. It's an alto alright.
Comments: A rich and creamy experience not unlike dining of the sweet blood of the devil himself. Lovingly nurtures the palate whispering midnight poetry to the spirit causing it to swoon,reel, then ravenously consume Sol Altos grand rippling body and soft tannins and allowing it to linger in a long muscular heady finish. Give it the remote and let it pick the channels, this one's a keeper.
