Red Wine | Malbec

Published on January 23, 2012, in Wine, Wine Tasting.

Among the “big six”, the Malbec grape originates from the Bordeaux region of France, but has become Argentina’s signature grape. Say Malbec to a wine lover and they will reply Argentina.  Malbec is making a new name for itself with red wine lovers everywhere.

Malbec is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic with firm tannins and a dense color.

Malbec is definitely a red meat wine that is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy Mexican, Cajun, Indian or Italian fare. Consider serving Malbec with barbecue, chili and sausage.
