2009 Dona Paula Los Cardos Malbec


Mendoza, Argentina / $10 Retail


Los Cardos, Dona Paula's second label, presents an outstanding value in the burgeoning Malbec category. This elegant yet approachable wine reflects the varietal's slow maturation and distinctive regional character. Complex aromas of raspberry, blackberry, cassis and hints of black pepper are followed on the palate by vibrant flavors of ripe plum, cherry and chocolate with a balanced acidity on the finish. Open an hour before serving. Enjoy it with tapas, grilled meats and vegetables, roast chicken, burgers, firm cheeses and hummus. Buy it at: Dorignac's. Drink it at: Antoine's and Impastato's Restaurant. — Brenda Maitland
