94. Lookout Point Winery 2011 Malbec, Rattlesnake Hills, $24
Owner/winemaker George Petzinger focuses his Malbec program on Two Coyote Vineyard — and for good reason. A beautiful display of oak shows with the nose of dark cherry, Damson plum, chocolate and toasted walnut, followed by an elegant structure of black currant, cherry and President plum. Sandy tannins and blueberry acidity lead to a remarkable finish of cocoa powder. His affordable and distinguished wines are available via Amazon.
