Protect your heart!

A quick note on a winner. The Bodega Septima, Malbec, 2005, Mendoza rings in at 14% acohol and spent 6 months in american oak. More importantly, the grapes for this wine are grown at 1,000 metres and a recent study has shown that the protective effects of red wine on lifespan are best in wines from grapes grown at a higher altitude. This baby is black in the glass. Nice pleasant fruity nose. A medium bodied slightly beefy wine with mild smooth tannins in the back ground. This is a good wine, nice and easy drinking with some character, although not a blockbuster. And it is definitely good value at $14-15. Buy some for a longer life!!
