Wine - Malbec

Malbec is a bit of a new-comer to the red wine scene, but it's been growing in popularity for the last 10 years or so. Sprinkled with berry flavors like plum, cherry, and raspberry, Malbec wine pairs well with red meat, so grab a bottle, call some friends, and go eat a big, fat steak like a red-blooded American.

What Does Malbec Taste Like?

Malbec (pronounced "mahl/behk”) is an inky, intense wine whose flavor varies depending on the region. The younger the wine, the stronger the fruity, juicy flavors. Malbec tends to have strong, rich flavors like plum that pair well with red meat.

The Little Wine That Could

Originally, Malbec was made in France as a blending wine to create their "Bordeaux Blend.” Unfortunately it’s pretty difficult to grow grapes, which caused prices to skyrocket and popularity to drop. Years later Malbec found a resurgence in Argentina, which eventually led to worldwide popularity.
