Maipe Malbec

Argentina' Mendoza is an up and coming wine region with Malbec being its signature grape. This a Wine Spectator's Best Value wine with the 2006 vintage rated at 88 points. Deep red in color, well balanced with dark plum, currant and blackberry fruit notes. It paired very well with roast pork, black beans, steamed rice and yucca which we had for our Christmas dinner yesterday.
