Catie, long overdue reply but a la Paul Hobbs- his Malbec is very good, but considering he gets his fruit for about 90 cents a kilo, the math doesn't quite add up. I also crush each year in Mendoza Argentina and can say that his fruit is very good and very inexpensive so the inflation is due to... artistic ventures. We are, of course talking about wine here and as an intelligent Kurt Vonnegut once said, So it goes.
