Most beginning, intermediate or expert wine drinkers will know of the often delicious, smooth and friendly red wine, Malbec. This particular type of wine comes from the Malbec grape, which is typically grown in Argentina, Chile and France. The particular Malbec that we want to shine a bright light on today is the Terrazas de los Andes Reserva Malbec.
The Terrazas Malbec begins with delicious aromas of black cherries and cinnamon, the strongest of which is certainly the black cherry. The cinnamon does exist in the early preview you may inhale, but it pales in comparison to the level of black cherry we noticed.
Once acidity is measured by tipping the glass and noting the impressive legs running down the side of our wine glass, we enjoyed a small sample that yielded a delicious result.
At first, you are greeted with a simple, yet complex body that contains a slight bitter sensation, but is quickly followed up with a smooth and satisfying finish. The same black cherries we noted during the preview were also present during the ending.
The complete package you will get when enjoying a bottle, or two, of Terrazas Malbec is an extremely versatile, simple and welcoming wine that's fantastic for just about any type of meal. We enjoyed our Malbec during a supper of Chicken Pesto Pasta.
Just about any type of pasta goes perfectly well with the Terrazas Malbec, particularly something with a red pasta sauce. As we creep towards warmer weather for the next handful of months, you will certainly want to break out the ole barbeque and we invite you to also enjoy a bottle of Terrazas Malbec with it.
Versatility, affordability and simplicity, that is what you will find with Terrazas de los Andes Reserva Malbec. This can be found in most retailers and comes with a suggested price tag of $18.99, though you should shop around liquor stores, as we found bottles for as low as $9.99.
