Greg Norman 2012 Malbec Mendoza Argentina

malbec-sm     You may remember me mentioning this wine in a post last month. My wife and I dined at Greg Norman’s Australian Grille in Myrtle Beach, S.C. and I had this wine with my dinner. I enjoyed this wine because it is very representative of Malbec from Argentina’s Mendoza Region. It is crimson-red and inky purple in the glass. The body is medium with understated oak that come from being cool fermented and spending 12 months in French and American oak barrels. The flavors are classic Malbec blackberry and cherry with a balance of full tannins and a long “grapey” Malbec finish. Greg Norman 2012 Malbec Mendoza Argentina can be found in P.L.C.B. stores as a Chairman’s Selection at the discounted price of $9.99 (Product Code 33631). A Malbec of this quality is seldom found at this price making it a must try if you are a fan of Mendoza Malbec. I should know because I paid 9 bucks for a glass at his restaurant.
