Staff Pick Notes

There's so many good reasons to get a half bottle of wine. Feel like just having a glass or two? Half bottle. Not sure about committing to a full bottle of something you've never had? Half bottle.

While not everyone gets excited about Malbec I nearly always love it, and this tasty specimen from Cahors in Southwest France is effortlessly delicious. Perfect in a pinch when all you've got lying around is bread and cheese, it's also a great pairing for hearty ragouts. Blackberries, black leather, and a touch of earthiness make this smooth sipping half bottle fully satisfying.
