APRIL 18, 2013 Ben Marco Mendoza Malbec 2011
World Malbec Day has come and gone for another year, but that does not mean I will quit enjoying this varietal until 2014. During the week, I tasted four Argentine and one Chile Malbec. Two of the wines tasted were very simple Malbecs.

APRIL 18, 2013 A penny for your…wine?!?
From the aisles of California retail, a site reader sends in this perhaps ultimate closeout–wine for a penny a bottle. What’s interesting is that this special offer, only available to CVS cardholders who also purchase a 18(!)-pack pack of Bud or Tecate (do they mean orange wine?).

WHY WINE BLOG Trivento Malbec Reserve 2011
| MONDAY, APRIL 15, 2013
Dinner tonight roasted pork done with Rosemary and Garlic served with mashed garlic potatoes and steamed asparagus. Usually served with a white wine or a Pinot Noir, but tonight it was Malbec. Another nice wine from Mendoza; a Trivento Malbec Reserve 2011 ( $11 ). Again like the Amado Sur , the color was a deep dark red. The aromas were more red fruit and berries on the nose with only a hint of vanilla and/or spice. MORE >>

A WINE STORY Tasting Notes Week of April 18th
| FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013
So Maria and Rob Stuart were kind enough to send us six bottles of their wine from McMinnville, Oregon -- last year we and several other bloggers were lucky enough to get an invitation to blend wine with them! I am saving our "Blogger''s Blend" for last, yet now am trying the Big Fire Pinot Noir 2010. It is rather light in color and translucent, with delicious cherry fruit on the nose and a very medium palate with more wild cherry fruit and a long, mineral and cherry finish. MORE >>

In the 1860''s, Malbec was brought from France to Argentina where it found its ideal terroir and climate in the foothills of the Andes Mountains.

Malbec wines From Mendoza are typically ripe and lush, with smooth tannins - a style that has proven internationally popular, with Malbec dubbed the indisputable Iconic Grape of Argentina. MORE >>
