Sorry Cathy... The pic was in reply to DD...
Malbec is a varietal wine... The Best grapes (And Wines) come from Argentina... Or at least in my opinion... Malbec was originally grown in France.... and used in the grape formula to create Bourdeaux. In recent years, since being grown in Argentina, it has taken off as a varietal wine. The grape is grown in Chile as well, but because of the soil and climate, it tend to be too tannic and end up in blended wines...

I got my Malbec last night. It took forever to find it at the grocery store. It was in the Imported section and there was only one brand. I opened it last night and took a picture. Do I post about it where Babs gave the instructions on what to do?

Trader Joe's carries a very servicable and inexpensive Malbec Brand named "La Boca" which is a good all around Malbec...
My personal favorite is the "Lo Tango" I have to get at Cost Plus/World Market... It's a nice spicy berry, with rich tobacco flavor... With a hint of woodland violets in the aroma... or rather... the bouquet.. Smile It's a very nice wine... especially with this...

Yes, I think so... The "NOVEMBER WINE: Malbec" thread

Thanks Shane. I'll post this evening after I've had a couple of glasses...hee hee. Besides, I don't want to be the first one to post. I wanna wait until you more experienced wino's (LOL J/K) post something. I wanna make sure I know what Im talking about before I open my mouth (to talk that is...I'll be opening my mouth a lot to pour that wine in!!!)

I just got back from running all around. Got all of my chores done though. Going to sit here and relax and decide if I want to open mine now or wait until tomorrow.

Danielle, did you like it?
