Truly a delicious surprise. Having just moved to Texas from California, I really wasn't expecting much when I purchased an assortment of Texas reds at my local HEB. I enjoyed this Malbec immensely. It is full-bodied and smooth. It will be one of my "go to" wines for every day or a special occasion.

Typical of all of Becker’s wines that truly reflect the wonderful native cuisine of our great state. I love this wine with smoked meats and game. Another excellent wine from the folks in Fredericksburg.
