Day 163-Maipe Andean Culture Malbec Rose 2008 from Mendoza, Argentina from Binnys for under $7
This is the 3rd rose' of a group of 4 rose' wines that we bought at Binnys for a total of $20. This is what I learned from buying 4 inexpensive wines that we have not previously tried, with a typr of wine, rose', that I typically know to be dry: SPEND THE $20 ON A WINE THAT I KNOW I LIKE. Some times I buy a wine due to the price and not due to the wine. I will not make the mistake again. This wine has been the best of the 3 rose' wines we have tried, without the acidic aftertaste and the heart burn sensation. However, this is not fruit forward and does not have any sweetness in it at all. I am not going to ever buy a rose' again, unless I have tried it, the Lynfred Rose' may just be a unique wine with its off dry finish and strawberry flavors.
