This classy, Argentinian Malbec from Susana Balbo has just a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon (5%) in the mix, contributing structure and stretching out the finish. On the nose, you’ll find dark cherry and blackberry fruit surrounded by mocha and vanilla spice.
The palate showcases black plum and cherry with rich dark chocolate and currents of coffee rounding out the flavor profile. The tannins on this Malbec are wound pretty tight and may appreciate a bit of breath and/or some more cellar time. Give it a go with pulled pork, barbecued ribs, beef empanadas, roasted venison and even grilled veggies.
