Caminada malbec from Argentina will not guarantee that you will dance like a pro; but one sip might have your toes tapping.
The “caminada” is the slow, deliberate walk-step that is an essential element in the Tango, the country’s national dance. Caminada Wines mirror a similar philosophy: be slow and deliberate and focus on the meticulous execution at each key step in the winemaking process.
Sourced from quality vineyards in Mendoza – regarded as the country’s prime growing region – conditions here provide an ideal climate for long hang times, top notch fruit complexity and a symbol of Argentina’s great wine culture.
(Caminda malbec is sold at the incredible price of $10. Lesser varietals sell for much more.)
This medium-bodied malbec is garnet with streaks of ruby reflecting in the glass. It is chewy with cassis, cherry and vanilla aromas. Wait a few moments for it to breathe and your palate will be rewarded with cascades of plum, chocolate, blackberry and leather.
Tannins are jazzy with natural acidity that lingers and yearns for more.
This selection is food friendly and ready to be enjoyed now. Pour this with rich meaty casserole dishes such as lasagna, chili topped with sour cream, shredded sharp cheddar and avocado slices.
