2005 Crane Lake Malbec

It's rare to find a $5 wine these days that even passes the drinkability test -- let alone deserves high praise. This is one. Many wines made from the malbec grape are hard and blocky, but this one offers straightforward, lush, enjoyable fruit. It's not complex or profound -- just a simple, medium-bodied red wine that you can enjoy right now. A perfect summer-fall party red.
