I have tried many Malbecs from Argentina but decided that adding one to the list would not hurt.
The combination of stony soils, altitude and in the crucial summer season warm days and cool nights married with the talent of head wine maker Sebastian Ruiz, a native of Santiago (Chile) make this Tamari Malbec a success.
This Malbec offers rich fruit and good tannins. The winery suggests that it could even stand up to wild boar and ostrich besides more standard fare grilled meats. It retails for around $11.
