    Hello, Gaucho. You have not made a Malbec post for a few days. You should know you're making me begin to order the stuff.

    Yes..... well, to tell the truth, the weeks continue to pass and these forums are still a mess with no organization because we cant get sub-forums approved.... its very annoying.

    Of course, I disagree with their choice of answer but thats another discussion.... :)

    I am an infrequent visitor to the destinations forum.

    Because of this exact reason.. there are pages of threads that are just jumbled all together for huge geographical areas... :(

    I came hoping to see if there are any destination threads pertaining to Costa Rica... and found this mess.....

    That is good news. Now I need to figure out how to get some here. I suppose I need a MR, or should it be WR?

    Sadly it is in early September when I must be on the other side of the world. It is very bad timing on my part; I should ahve had my trips better planned!

    Which ones do you recommend? There are quite a few from different producers, I find, with prices that vary widely.

    I am getting a nice price for Clos de los Siete 2007. I have never tried it. Is it decent? It's coming from Grand Cru so a good price is mind-boggling!

    Decent, yes... not anything special and perhaps a rather international style... but consistent and proper value for money - if the guys at Grand Cru offer you something reasonable. What do they want for it...???
