      All about malbec

      What is malbec?

      A medium to full-bodied red wine variety, malbec comes mostly from Argentina. Australia, Chile, South Africa and the United States also grow malbec grapes, but Argentina remains the leader in production. Winemakers often combine this Argentinian grape with other grape varieties for a rich red blend. It has a dark purple color and sells as a dry red wine.

      What's the flavor profile of this red wine?

      Malbec red wine has dark fruit flavors of black cherry, raspberry, pomegranate or raisin. It has a smoky finish with plenty of acidity and higher levels of tannins and alcohol. There are subtle hints of cocoa, molasses, black pepper and coffee, among other flavors. Malbec often finds a place in many different wine styles, including rosé, sparkling or dessert wines.
