Malbec Wine Details

Description: We imported this juice from the finest vineyards in Argentina, fermented it out, and will be putting it in French oak barrels for 6 to 9 months to finish the process. This beautiful, rich wine should be ready by May, 2009. It will really be something not to be missed! This will pair well with a porterhouse or prime rib.

Varietal Definition
Originating from the Bordeaux region of France, this grape is among the "big six" for red wine grapes. Malbec is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic. The tannins are typically a bit tight and the earthy, wood-like appeal makes for a fairly rustic wine. Malbec goes well with roast meats such as chicken or turkey. It should be served at 58F and can be aged for up to 5 years typically.
