Tasting Notes

The Malbec grape was once popular in Bordeaux but these days it is mostly associated with Argentina. Here we have a rosé made of the bold Malbec grape coming from the Mendoza region. It is dry yet full of red berry fruit aromas. With a chill, it is as crisp and delicious as any rosé we've tasted.

Staff Pick Notes

You may be asking yourself, Rosè in the fall? I say, “Why Not?” This beautifully colored Rosè is one for all seasons.

So, I say, let’s join them and send a toast to the Argentineans that have done this Malbec right :)
