    Here's a great entry point wine into the wonderful world of Mendoza. With dark spicey aromas on the nose, the wine is smooth and juicy on the palate with dense black fruit and hints of tobacco and chocolate. This is a super contender in the under $10 weeknight category!

    This is a great everyday drinker, even better a party wine, it is simple, charming and very drinkable. Dark cherry and dark berry fruit with a spicy compote note and a hint of well worn leather on the nose. Medium bodied, round fruit entry with soft tannins that gently expand on the palate. Charming dark cherry fruit with a real subtle spice note on the palate.

    A quality sub-$10 Malbec from Mendoza. This Argentine red draws you in with aromas of boysenberry, açaí, and blue fruit. Underlying tones of espresso powder chocolate, and leather. On the palate, this wine is notably lighter than your typical Malbec. Silky tannins accented by berry medley and milk chocolate flavors. Elevated acidity as well. Two thumbs up for this value South American red!

    I've always had a soft spot for this over-delivering Malbec, but perhaps never more so than for the 2014. It's a ton of wine, especially for our sub-$8 price and it probably won't be long for our shelves at that. The color is a deep ruby, but the aromas are lined with blue and red fruit. The palate is fresh and vibrant, exceptionally balanced, and concentrated without being heavy. The style almost has me thinking $25 Côtes du Rhône. Either way, an easy-going bottle that begs to be shared and one you won't have to think twice about opening at a modest $7.99.

    I would urge anyone reading this to not be turned off by the low price of this wine, since it: a.) is delicious and b.) drinks at least as well or better than many of the $10-$15 reds in our already highly curated selection. Tilia is pure, plummy Malbec, but with loads of freshness and drinkability. There is a much drier and more serious palate impression than what one may expect for under $10 red. A naturally occurring 13% ABV thanks to a cooler vintage, this is fantastic wine for any and all value seekers. Just might be the value red of the year for me - don't be shy about the price, you will love this wine. Added bonus: Tilia continues to be made from organic grapes.

    I love the direction that affordable Argentinian Malbec is headed. This wine is taut and focused, with plenty of ripe berry fruit. Notes of plum and blackberry on the palate deliver you to a slightly tannic and spicy finish. How can this wine be only $8.99?!?!?

    This is a steal. We all know Malbec is a bargain, but this wine has it all. Gamey, dark fruit with a pleasantly plump body and bright acidity with chewy, ripe tannins: this wine is a no-brainer. Perfect for parties, or as your new house red!

    It's inky, lush, and plummy - three components that I adore about Malbec. This is an easy-drinking, full-bodied wine that bursts on to the palate with notes of dark cherry, mocha, black currant and baking spice to finish. A very, very nice Malbec that drinks well above its $8.99 price point.
