Lucky Duck Malbec
Lucky Duck's Malbec pours a dark, clear ruby, almost purple. It smells like mild blackberries, but it pretty muted otherwise. You taste it and get some moderately tart raspberry notes with very weak tannins, and an abrupt finish. Is it bad? No, especially in the realm of cheap wines. Is it a good representation of Malbec? Not at all. It lacks the depth, tannin, and wonderful earthiness that make Malbecs awesome. It is pretty much a one-note wine that tastes more like a weak Cabernet Sauvignon. But, it's Walmart... what do you expect? It would still pair well enough with tomato-based pasta and pizza dishes if you aren't looking for something more complex and rich.
Lucky Duck's Malbec is good enough if you want an extremely cheap, red wine. Personally, I would rather pay a couple more dollars and get some Malbec that tastes like Malbec. But, I've had worse cheap wine, that's for sure.
GREAT MARKETING,GREAT SIMPLE AND FUN APPEARANCE AND A GREAT PRICE. I ONLY PAID $2.59 AT(A GROCERY ONLY) WALLMART. IT'S AN ALMOST SURPRISING CABERNET EVEN FOR THE 7-$15 RANGE.I WOULD COMPARE TO YELLOW TAIL OR BETTER. AS FAR AS WALLMART OWNING IT? IT SEEMS TO BE A BRAIN CHILD OF AN ENTREPRENEURIAL DISTRIBUTORSHIP THAT SEEMS TO SEARCH AND PRIDE THEMSELVE ON FINDING HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS FOR A EYEBROW RAISING PRICE AND THEN CAPITALISING ON THEM WITH LONGEVITY IN MIND. FROM EXPERIANCE I HAVE FOUND IT HARD TO LOCK IN A DEAL WITH WALLMART WITHOUT RIDICULOUS MARGINS AND EXCLUSIVTY. I FORSEE THIS WINES LINE GOING UP IN PRICE VERY SOON. OH CRAP I JUST RAN OUT. GEUSS MY WIFES GOING BACK TO WALLMART TO GET MORE. DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE. ANYWAY, JUST SAYIN. SIGHNED, FINN MICHAEL KORY.
