Sorbus, cabernet/malbec, 2004

Sorbus, cabernet/malbec, Mendoza, 2004. $6 find this wine

The other day a friend poured me some $6 Borsao, a wine that I discovered several years ago as a go-to value. Well, move over Borsao, here comes something meatier. A phenomenal value, this Sorbus displays the depth that a cab-malbec blend can give and has that same, crowd pleasing “ah” of the Ruca Malen Yauquen. I found it at PJ’s Wine in Manhattan for the bargain price of $5.97. This is one to buy by the case! Importer: Mediterranean Wine Co, Dover, NJ.

  1. I had the chance to try this at your recommendation, and agree that this is a great wine for the price. Terrific find! I am going to buy more.

  2. Excellent!

    If you are searching the under $6 (!) category, I just saw cuvee de pena listed at a store in NJ for $5.49–a definite steal. But then again, you can always get the 3L box of it at Astor for $18, which is a great deal per ounce!!

  3. I had it at your recommendation, and it was fantastic! Thanks again for the great find!
