Staff Pick Notes

As Malbec, one of Bordeaux's five grapes, is being phased out in France, it has grown to be one of the main red grapes of Argentina. The grape is purple-skinned and the clone used has full, luscious dark berry flavors with substantial but not bitter tannins and a good acid backbone. The vineyard and winery is owned by Baron Rothschild, who is associated with only the finest wineries and winemakers around the world. The Gran Malbec is a great holiday wine as well as an everyday food wine. Since it is not Mevushal, the natural grape flavors have not been altered. It is highly compatible with slow-roasted brisket and chicken dishes and root vegetables. Because of its smoothness, it is also a wine to share with friends even when not dining.
