Malbec & Food Pairings


For centuries, Malbec, has been a grape used to make Bordeaux, as well as Cahors.  However, in the past decade, Malbec has gained notoriety in Argentina as a remarkable red wine.

Similar to Merlot, Malbec is a dark and medium to full bodied red wine with essences of blackberries, cherries and licorice.  A complex Malbec may have a  mineral or earthy quality, such as summer rain on a dirt road.
