2007 Del Fin del Mundo Malbec Reserva

Patagonia, Argentina


$20 Retail

Fruit for this Malbec comes from grapevines that thrive in the arid, windy climate. Slightly lighter-bodied than Mendoza Malbecs, this reserva is aged one year in both French and American oak. In the glass, the wine offers aromas of plum, cedar, blackberry, vanilla notes and spice. On the palate, taste black cherry, red currants, cocoa, toast and herbal flavors with mellow tannins and balanced acidity. Decant several hours before serving. Drink it with rare beef, roast game and fowl, gumbo, leg of lamb, tamales, enchiladas, pate, Cajun and Greek dishes, hearty Italian dishes and firm cheeses. Buy it at: Dorignac's. Drink it at: Iris, Oak and The Wine Loft.
