Malbec

Although Argentinian Malbec’s have grown in popularity over the last few years, Malbec got its start in France. It’s been used as a blending grape, but also shines on its own in the Cahors region. Malbec is ripe and juicy with dark berry fruit flavors and soft, supple tannins. It offers just enough earth and spice to be elegant and complex, while having fresh notes of berries and oak to be a friendly wine.
