2012 Malbec
 
About This Wine:
One of the lesser-known grapes to be used in traditional Bordeaux blends, Malbec is increasingly celebrated as a South American varietal, and it was in the Andean foothills of Mendoza in Argentina where Picchetti's owner, Leslie, first discovered and fell in love with this wine. Barrel-aged in French Oak for 24-months, this smooth full-bodied vintage from the east side of Paso Robles adeptly balances acidity with bursts of red fruit flavors. Dusty leather notes and alluring scents of cinnamon and vanilla provide complexity, while the bright color invites the eye to indulge and the taste buds to savor. This food-friendly wine is very drinkable today, but the nicely integrated tannins will permit its elegance to gradually unfold over a further 5-8 years in the bottle. The perfect accompaniment to grilled meats with chimichurri sauce, empanadas and calzones, it is adaptable enough to stand up to spicy Thai, Indian, Cajun and Mexican fare. Salud!
