Tikal, Malbec Patriota, 2010

4/5 $26.00

Talk about a full-bodied red! I was recommended this Malbec by the lovely folks at New York Vintners and I am so glad I was. It can really only be described as luscious, with strong notes of ripe berry, cherry, and cocoa. As it opens, it develops into a smooth, balanced wine with hints of cinnamon and spice that really works quite well together. It could easily pair with grilled meats, hearty stew, or even a nice big piece of steak. While I’m all about pairing foods with bigger bodied wines, this one could really even just be drunk on its own!

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
