Mosaic Malbec

Mosaic Malbec Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Brimming with youthful vibrance, the delicate aromatics of plum and damson are offset with light floral touches. Dark fruit flavors dance across the tongue with essence of black cherry, plum, and marionberry. A young tannic acid grabs the attention whilst hinting at an emerging jamminess that will show itself to the more patient among us that might save some for later.

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.
