While we all know and love Malbec from Argentina, the grape is actually indigenous to France—from the region of Cahors, in the western part of the country, south of Bordeaux. Bright with red cherries and fruit on the nose, this wine never touches oak and thereby maintains a juicy and expressive flavor. Its palate is large, but not overwhelming with nice tannins and a lengthy finish. A marvelous mate to any casual fare like a protein-rich dinner from The Cottage or Red Farm!
