Bud's Picks: Callia Malbec 2014

Just when you think you have covered the bases, another one comes in and you are back in the game!

The management of Hopewell Buy Rite where I work decided we should have Callia Alta Malbec 2014 from Argentina. I looked at it and did the usual eyeball evaluation - "label looks pretty good, so it much be okay." The Boss said, "Try one, you will like it."

I was hesitant, but broke down and bought one. He was right! A nice, everyday table wine, good fruit, lingers on the palate for just the right amount of time, soft drinker. It's got everything I want in a Malbec and the some. The "then some" is the price! Get this - $8.99 on sale at Hopewell Buy Rite. $6.97 with your club card. I'm taking one for each hand today. It's a winner!
