Urraca Malbec Mendoza Argentina Vineyards 2008

With the holidays fast approaching I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone, including myself, what the true belief of this blog is.  The essence of what I want to relate is that many lasting memories are made when you share quality time with good friends and loving family over a glass of wine.  This and the next two posts will highlight three Malbec that are highly rated and fairly priced.  All three will pair well with grilled or roasted red meat or even a hamburger because it won’t only be turkey and stuffing for dinner until New Years Eve.

Urraca Malbec Mendoza Argentina Vineyards 2008   $17.99    Wine Spectator 90 points.   This wine has all the traditional qualities that come to mind when you think of a Malbec from Argentina.  Urraca Malbec 2008 is dark and full-bodied with intense flavors of concentrated blackberry and plum along with lots of oak to round out this classic Malbec.  I would recommend using your wine aerator or swirling it in your glass to open it up.
