Medium violet color. Smoky, herbal aromas and flavors of singed berry pie crust, charred nuts, deep fried dill pickle, and leather with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a sleek, captivating, medium-length dried sour cherry, honey cream, nougat, and dill juice finish with silky, chewy tannins and light oak. A fun, smoky, spicy malbec that will be fun to pair with.

Malbec

While Malbec is historically known as a red Bordeaux variety, it is Argentina that has given this grape its new found popularity. Bright purple in color with ripe plum and black cherry fruit with moderate acidity, Malbec from Argentina has become the people’s choice among moderately priced red wines ($12-$16 a bottle in domestic markets).

Along with the plum and black cherry flavors, there are notes of pepper, black spice and in a few examples, a note of tobacco. Most versions from Argentina are made for consumption upon release or within the first two years after the vintage date; however, a few producers make long-lived offerings of Malbec from older vineyards that retail for $40 or more.

Malbec can work with a humble foods such as empanadas, hamburgers or grilled chicken or even roast meats or lighter game.
