By way of background: 

Initial review : This is Rutini Trumpeter Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina, 2009, Rutini's entry-level malbec, finished at 13.5% alcohol.

In the glass: Deep bold red.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows bold plums.  From the aroma, seems like this will be deep but simple.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact bright plum fruit, as promised by the nose.  Still rich, however.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for this rich style.  Becomes a good value because of the bargain price.
