Marcus James Malbec Review
Seeing how I have only been drinking beer in the past few weeks, I decided to get a bottle of red wine. Of course I got a malbec. There are so many on the market, most under $10 CAD, and offer a great taste. The Marcus James Malbec goes for $9.45 CAD at the LCBO and is 12.7% alcohol by volume.
The wine has a deep red color, but it is not as dark as some other malbecs as some light can be seen around the edges of the glass. It has a pleasant sweet berry aroma. The flavour is the same. There is a distant hint of sweet berries. The finish is dry and medium bodied. It is a fairly
enjoyable red wine for under $10, which might appeal to some people more than other malbecs because of the sweet berries hint and the overall lightness.
Cost - $9.45 CAD
Taste - 8.2/10
Overall - 8.2/10...better than the Trapiche Malbec, but not as good as the Trapiche Reserve Malbec
