Malbec World Day-01

Malbec World Day 2015

When you think of malbec wine, what comes to mind? Do adjectives such as robust, flavorful, acidic or dynamic come to mind? Or do foods such as beef, lamb, or rabbit come to mind? Though the responses may differ, it is pretty clear that one wine-producing region definitely comes to mind: Mendoza.  Often times other regions such as Bordeaux, Italy, or Napa are first to be mentioned, but Argentina undoubtedly and proudly wears the crown for being the leading producer of malbec in the world.
