Malbec '03

Malbec '03 Wine Details
Price: $15.50 per bottle

Description: A wonderful red wine that sits with you like an old friend. Malbec won't make you work to hard to understand it, yet, it will entice you with wisps of fruit, chocolate and tiny bits of cherry. Much like a wonderful tray of goodies Grandma used to put out on Sundays when you were a child. Almost like a comfort wine. Drink softly and enjoy for a few moments.

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.
