2010 Postales del Fin del Mundo Malbec


Patagonia, Argentina / $11-$13 Retail

Patagonia, 500 miles below Argentina's renowned Mendoza wine region, is gaining recognition for its European-style wines. This 100 percent Malbec bottling offers aromas of black and red fruit and hints of vanilla, earth and spice. On the palate, taste ripe plum and currants, black tea and rounded tannins culminating in a smooth finish. Decant an hour before serving, and drink with rare beef, pork, lamb, poultry, pizza and firm cheeses. Buy it at: The Wine Seller, Dorignac's and The Wine Market in Slidell. Drink it at: Eiffel Society, Bistro Daisy, Santa Fe, Byblos and Royal Palm. — Brenda Maitland
