Food Pairings for Mapema Malbec
Wine Spectator ReviewRated 90 Ripe and forward, with dark licorice, fig, currant preserve and chocolate notes riding along round, rich tannins. Rock-solid finish. Drink now through 2010. Wine Tasting Notes Intense purple color with shades of violet. Heady aromas of kirsch, cocoa, mint and exotic woods make you want to keep inhaling deeply. Red & black cherry flavors coat the palate, and the oak tannins frame the intense fruit flavors, keeping them from taking over the place! This Malbec is as good on the second day as it is on the firstif you can avoid finishing it! It is a great example of cool weather Malbecit has all the spicy/fruity character of the grape, but it also has a deeper, more serious side. Best with meats such as pork (grilled or roasted loin), grilled hamburgers or steaks, and lamb prepared any way you like. Good with goat, too.
