Malbec originates from Bordeaux and is still sometimes used in the red wines made there. However, its susceptibility to disease has caused its popularity to dwindle since its 19th century heyday.(Further south in Cahors, Malbec is still the main variety.)
Today, however, it has become the flagship red grape of Argentina, where the unique geography helps protect it from pestilence and maladies. Argentinean Malbec expresses a vivid blackberry fruitiness and a silky ripeness not often achieved in France.
Malbec is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot in Bordeaux and with Tannat and Merlot in Cahors. In Argentina, Malbec excels in its own right and often benefits from oak aging. Its ripe tannins and lush flavors make it a perfect partner for steak.
Inky black in color with notes of blackberries and chocolate.
