Last night Moxie banged up some amazing veggie stuffed flank steaks. I needed a juicy, big , fruity wine to match her culinary skills. I opened this Malbec from Argentina’s Mendoza region and give her a half cup for the marinade/sauce. I then went to the glass. Beautiful purple with some great plums and blackberry on the nose. A delicious palate of dark berry, purple plums and chocolate. Medium tannins and good acidity make this a juicy drink for $15. However, as good as it was while we were cooking, it became muted as soon as I sat down for dinner. The wine did not hold up to the meat at all. I was really surprised. After dinner, it came back to life without any food around. I have never seen this happen. A great drinking wine, but not worthy of pairing with food, strange. Anyway, I would buy it again for the price and simply drink it before or after dinner, perhaps at a party- problem solved! 3 stars and 88 points for me. Salut….
