High Ants

Strange name for a bodega - Altos Las Hormigas roughly translates into "high ants". I've seen this Mendoza vineyard (had lunch next door), and I don't remember any ants nor any hills (unless you count the Andes, but they are 30 miles away). Anyways, I digress. Their Malbec, 2006 has a tight nose but is a lively medium bodied spicy vibrant little number. It tastes like a cross between cranberries and blueberries sandwiched between leather. The finish fades fast.
A good entry level malbec, about right at $14 a pop.
