2000 Dos Mundos Malbec

2000 Dos Mundos Malbec Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: A few years ago, Fred was in Mendoza, Argentina, for the harvest and came across an opportunity to team up with the Festa family, who own vineyards and a small winery there. Malbec is grown throughout Argentina, but in Mendoza it reaches a quality level that surpasses anywhere else in the world, including its native place of origin, southwest France. Our first effort is a big inky, ripe, and succulent Malbec that cries out for a juicy steak! Definitely world class.

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.
