Malbec has become increasingly popular throughout the United States. It was originally near the Bordeaux Region near Midi, but more recently has become the home of New World wines especially Argentina. Malbec adds color, body and richness along with berry fruit and structure in each glass.
Here is Malbec's universe of flavors: [varies from winery to winery]
FRUIT: Blackbery, Black Cherry, Black Olive, Black Plum, Mulberry
WOOD: Chocolate, Mocha, Vanilla
OTHER: Black Licorice
Malbec goes great with beef, hamburger, game of all types, rich root vegetables such as parsnips or carrots, stews, and stronger cheeses such as Roquaefort, Gorganzola, Port Salute and others. Avoid aggressive washed rind cheeses like Epoisses or Chimay. Malbec will overwhelm fish, cream base sauces, most Asian dishes, and delicate white meat such as pork, poultry or veal.
