World Malbec day was exactly six months ago on April 17. I thought I’d celebrate today by sharing information on the reasonably priced ($10 – 14) Graffigna Malbec Reserve 2010 from Argentina. I received a sample courtesy of Pernod Ricard for review purposes. 2010 was a great vintage for red wines.
Graffigna, established in 1870, is the oldest operating winery in San Juan. The wine is made using top quality fruit to express the true varietal character. The color is deep red, with some purple hues. It’s bouquet is dark berry with a hint of pepper and spices. It’s a complex structured wine with great depth, well-integrated tannins and complex fruit with a hint of vanilla. In short, it’s a complex delicious wine.
Try it with any grilled meat, especially lamb or beef or with cheese.
