2002 Vila "Tinto Fundacion" (Cruz de Piedra, Mendoza, Argentina)

Cheap, but a disappointment. I bought it because it was cheap and imported by Hand Picked Selections, one of my favorite importers, but this wine was so acidic as to be nearly undrinkable. A blend of Bonarda, Malbec, and Cabernet, and weighing in at 13.5% alcohol, the acidity was a jolt that obliterated whatever flavors were there. 67. Was $5.10 a bottle at the new Spec's on Richmond, but isn't even a good buy at that price.
