As we approach the heart of the Christmas Party season we know that you can always use a delicious and inexpensive bottle of red to take along to your next party. So this week we have a luscious 90 Point Malbec from the Antigal Winery in Mendoza that is so good and so darn easy to enjoy that you’ll find yourself reaching for it over and over again. The nose is awash with sultry scents of baking chocolate, wilted violets, toasted graham crackers, and sweet vanilla. It has the kind of striking scent that everyone is sure to stop and take notice of. Then, when you have that first sip, bountiful layers of black plums and blueberry preserves begin to burst onto the scene. They are quickly followed up by appealing hints of fresh brewed coffee, blind baked pie crust, and cassis liqueur. There are no hard edges on the finish here. Instead the wine is generous and ripe. It is a perfect wine to serve in any casual setting because it is good enough to be the star of the show but it’s inexpensive enough that you can open a bottle for any reason without regret. Don’t get caught short this holiday season. Swing by the shop this weekend before things get too busy and stock up so that you have one less thing to worry about.
Food Pairing:A generous and supple bottle of Malbec makes a perfect cocktail on a chilly evening. But the 2014 Antigal Uno has such impressive volume on the palate that it would be a great wine to pair with food. I think you could easily set it alongside a chimichurri rubbed grilled flank steak or even a hearty burger studded with crumbled bleu cheese. In any case, this is the sort of wine that is such a crowd pleaser that it is sure to serve you well through the holiday season and beyond.
