Malbec 2017

Scratching his head, the man stared at the strange row of vines on the edge of his vineyard. They were so much taller than the others but produced such a small crop. He tasted the sample from the lone barrel the vines were just barely able to fill. For once he had decided to keep their production separate this year, instead of blending everything as his family had done for generations.

Winemaker Notes
Grown in only small quantities as a blending grape in Bordeaux, Malbec has taken some time to gain the world stage. From humble beginnings as a single variety wine in the fairly obscure French region of Cahors, in the South West of the country, it is now well established in the New World. Tasting this one makes it clear why this grape is being brought to the far-flung corners of the globe.
Food Pairing Notes
A cellar candidate to be sure, and a wine that will sit proudly alongside the very best cut of prime rib.
