Malbec Wine Details
Price: $29.00 per bottle

Description: Malbec may have made a name for itself "down under" in Argentina, but our Beresan Malbec from Pepper Bridge Vineyard is "over the top" with yummy fruit flavors, with a unique dispersion of bubble gum, red licorice and an enticing rose petal nose.

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.
