As a son of Eastern European immigrants, I have inherited some serious cheapness. When I am at Sprouts, and I see a $4.99 Malbec, it is hard for me to pass it up. Malbecs, in my perspective, are under-appreciated.
These 2 selections were drinkable, and for $5 a bottle, just fine.
The Marcus James Malbec Mendoza 2009, is OK (links here, here, and here). The Falling Star Malbec Cuyo Argentina 2008 is not bad (links here, here and here). I was happy to find both at Sprouts, on sale. At $5 a bottle, they're hard to beat for a drinkable table wine.
