Dusty ruby color. Aromas and flavors of sugar plums, cherry taffy, and blueberry and blackberry with a satiny, dry medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-length finish that presents notes of red and black berry mix, brandied cherry, and light black tea with basswood honey with no oak flavor. A simple but extremely well executed Malbec that makes you crave dinner at an Argentinean steakhouse.

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 array of foods such as empanadas, hamburgers or grilled chicken or even roast meats or lighter game.
