The wine is saturated purple in color with good alcohol and tannin structure, It is capable of aging well. There is a hint of sweetness and spices which adds to a complexity of flavors and a great depth of aromas. On the palate there are layers of dark berry fruit with subtle hints of stone and minerals. On the finish rich flavors of mocha, figs, honey, and dark cherries abound and give way to an elegant, precise finish.
Umami lover. Unlike Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec doesn’t have a super long finish. Because of this, Malbec is great with leaner red meats (ostrich anyone?). The wine does extremely well with funky flavors like blue cheese and rustic flavors like mushrooms and cumin spice.
Perfect Malbec Food Pairing: Black pepper buffalo burgers with blue cheese mushrooms and rosemary infused garlic kale chips.
