By Matt Goldstein & Amy K. Haight

Don Paula wines from Argentina’s Mendoza region can now be found all over the world, and after only two years on the international scene, Don Paula was already landing awards in Europe and America.  97% of Don Paula’s production is exported to 60 countries all over the world and we found a bottle in Sophia’s in Margate NJ, an upscale Greek restaurant.  Recommended by our favorite bartender and surfer, George, the Don Paula Los Cardos 2010 Malbec was the perfect choice for a complex red when you’re not looking to break the bank.  For about $10 a bottle, the Don Paula Los Cardos is simply one of the best malbec’s you can buy in the price range.

From the Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza region,  the desert climate has ooor clayey soils.  Also, the climate is characterized by its warm days and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 14°C (57.2°F).  The estate is located at 1,050 meters (almost 3,445 ft) above sea level and the average annual rainfall in this area is 200 mm (7.87 in)managed using sustainable agriculture practices.

Tasting Notes if the Don Paula Los Cardos 2010 Malbec:

Slightly bitter, tart and complex, flavorful and well balanced.  Notes of fruits and bitter herbs, this red wine is soft, with a perfectly balanced finish.  We absolutely recommend the Don Paula Los Cardos Malbec for about $10.

  • two-word reply to your message: “Opportunity costs.”That’s what you’re not ceoiidnrsng. How much time (and time = money) is an author supposed to waste waiting, from the point where his novel is finished, to its (increasingly unlikely) pub date by some Legacy Publisher? , and I invite you and others to read or re-read it. His considerations are not just persuasive; they’re unassailable.Look: If I self-publish, I have a 100% guarantee of my novel being available for sale within weeks of when it’s finished. I could start earning money immediately, and go on to write something else.So, how much would I trade away — in time, money, and creative independence — if I must go through the 2-3 year ordeal to find an agent, for her to find a publisher, and for the publisher to finally get around to putting my book into print? Even assuming that this all works out (which is increasingly unlikely), the most common financial reward will be a $5k advance for all that work and waiting.Self-pubbing vs. trad pubbing? For me, it’s not even a contest.–Robert Bidinotto
