Malbec Columbia Valley

Malbec Columbia Valley Wine Details
Price: $28.00 per bottle

Description: Malbec 100%. Aromas on this wine are bold with black cherries and dried berries such a raisins, and a hint of meatiness that adds interest and complexity. On the palate, this year’s Malbec is saturated with black, dark berry and plum flavors supported by some minerality and a bit of meat. The wine is perfectly balanced with a great dose of natural acidity and ends with a long, clean finish.

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.
