Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. TILIA Malbec 2010 Wine Review
Simply incredible for the price! Juicy with mouth-watering, full-bodied flavours of fleshy dark plums and berries. A velvet smooth texture. Great for parties and smaller get-togethers. This TILIA Malbec 2010 was reviewed by June 22, 2012 Natalie MacLean

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Mark Britton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Fantastic value in this malbec at $12.95. A great bodega on the Eastern side of Mendoza, the malbec capital of the world. Rich black fruit, soft balanced tannins, and beautiful deep Ruby (almost blue) colour. A great steak wine, but could also be enjoyed with burgers or BBQ meats.
