This time of year it’s a good idea to stock up on a crowd-pleasing wine. Between all of the gatherings with co-workers, neighbors, friends and family, wine can disapear quickly. It’s always a good feeling to be remembered as the person who not only has more to share, but has the ‘good stuff’! When it comes to reds, there are few varietals quite as crowd-pleasing as Malbecs. They offer ripe fruit without being overwhelming, balanced acidity and tannins and often over-deliver for their price point.
Case in point: the Dona Paula Estate Malbec 2015. This Argentinian red is floral and aromatic, all about violets and blueberries, offers great freshness and poise wrapping up with a finish that is extremely pleasant and balanced. It’s rich, round and sure to please the lips of everyone who tries it. Universally admired, it has received numerous awards including a 90pt rating from Wine Advocate!
