2005 la yunta tinto cab malbec bonarda: needs another try

march 29, 2009: we had the 2005 la yunta tinto cabernet malbec bonarda from mendoza, argentina. greg thought it was mellow but acidic. victoria thought it had a blackberry nose. it was light, but too acidic and needs to mellow a bit more from her perspective. it's not overly tannic, though. we had it with an indian butter chicken dish which had a slightly spicy flavor, and the combination was not ideal. i think this would be good with a lamb dish. it becomes less acidic the more it warms up in the bottle/glass. it is 13.5 percent alcohol. about $9.
