Artist Collection Malbec North Coast Wine Details
Price: $33.00 per bottle

Description: This is a rich, fleshy Malbec, with flavors reminiscent of blackberry jam, pepper, oak, rhubarb, and leather. Very long finish. Serve it with spaghetti alla Bolognese (spaghetti in tomato sauce with chicken livers), risotto with two cheeses, braised kidneys with mushrooms, roast duck, veal parmigiana (breaded cutlets, with Parmesan cheese and tomato sauce), and beef empanadas (pastry with beef and vegetable filling).

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.
