Wednesday Wine Tasting

The wine I am drinking came from Laithwaites Wine Club; it is a 2012, not a 2008.
I really like South American wines, so here goes:
right off the bat = 50
Color is lovely=  5/5
aroma a little weak and heavy on the oak= 7/10
taste, just what I would expect from a malbec and deeper than the aroma suggests= 12/15
finish is really nice, not bitter or icky = 8/10
overall impression based on a ll of the Malbecs I have tried is this is to be expected 7/10
Total =89 points from me

Note: please drink responsibly.  This bottle will take me about a week to finish.  As the week goes on, the wine opens up more and the flavor changes.  I had 1/2 a glass of this yesterday and today's half glass is much smoother.  Let it breathe.
