Deep purple color. Fruity aromas and flavors of blackberry coulis, freshly sliced orange, and honeyed toast with a round, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and an effortless, interesting, medium-length finish with moderate oak flavor. A rich and fruity Malbec with a strong body for steaks.

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.
