A great drinking wine with a price to match!
Malbec may have originally been associated with Cahors and Bordeaux in France, but it is the Mendoza region of Argentina where Malbec's greatest fame lies. Here on the eastern slope of the Andes mountains, Malbec produces wines of rich flavors, lush mouthfeel, and silky tannin. Ocaso Malbec has all of the best characters of Mendoza Malbec, and brings them all at a super price.
It is soft and flavorful with expressive notes of espresso, nutmeg, charred toast and black/blue fruit, in a medium bodied, smoothly structured package that leads to a long, savory finish. It is a great match to a wide range of foods, from Argentinean style parilla grilled meat to American BBQ to roast chicken and even rich pasta dishes.
Food Friendly, Drinks Great, Top Wine for the Summer
As Kathy Brindle, Gary's Wine Associate, discovered one night when she took a bottle home, it's all about versatility. "What really impressed me about the Ocaso Malbec was how food-friendly it was," Kathy says. "It stood up to a gorgonzola-topped grilled filet mignon, but it didn't overpower a side dish of angel hair pasta and summer veggies. And I could imagine how the ripe blackberry fruit flavors and long smooth finish would also make it a great match for BBQ chicken." This is a soft and pleasant red wine that pairs great with almost everything. Of course, it should be no surprise. It hails from the good-food-lovin' country of Argentina!
