A Malbec That is Too Legit to Quit?

Alright, not all of my titles can be winners but MC Hammer’s classic will be strumming through your head too once you taste this bottle of deliciousness. I’ve always enjoyed Malbec, but it’s not my go-to grape so I often forget how good they can be. When I come across a really good one, and I mean good, I always ask myself why I don’t drink more of it.

Malbec grapes tend to have an inky dark color and robust tannins. Malbec has become really popular in Argentina but are grown in France (one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine), Chili, and the United States, just to name a few.

Bodega “Septima Obra” Malbec, 2014 from Mendoza, Argentina absolutely blew my mind! Septima’s Malbec has sexy aromas of blackberries, strawberry yogurt, vanilla, and oak. I seriously kept going back to my glass for another whiff -- I could not get enough! The flavors were just as good with blueberries, tobacco, and smooth tannins for days…finishing long, all of the notes just went on and on. This is one of the best Malbecs I’ve had in a long time. Yep, this wine is a game changer.

If you’re a Malbec fan or better yet if you’re not, try this bottle! I’m telling you, I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed. Retailing for around $25 I don’t think it could get any better. Seriously, this wine is too legit to quit!! OK, sorry, had to throw that line down again!
Sláinte! TCW
