Malbec is in the driver’s seat when it comes to making quality Argentine wines. Originally from Southern France, this red grape achieves a great range of flavors and styles in Argentina. A common thread running through the better versions is an engaging fruitiness and supple core of red fruit and spice flavors. This week’s selection is comprised mostly of wines from key subregions in Mendoza, Argentina’s Malbec heartland.
