Malbec World Day Wines Argentina

Every spring the wine world takes stock of the power of malbec. Largely because Argentina dominates the category at virtually every wine store on the planet. Here’s two I’ve tasted recently that show off its appeal and its potential to rival other top shelf red varieties.
The Decero is 100% Malbec and this is much more than a fruit bomb. A medium to full bodied wine with its signature notes of violet giving way to a toasty, rich wine with good acidity keeping it all in balance. An elegant red available at Marquis Wine Cellars on Davie street for $28 plus tax.
The Altosur Red Blend is 50% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah and celebrates the style of jammy reds that made Malbec famous and the go-to wine for pizza parties everywhere. This wine is on sale for $17 plus tax at B.C. Liquor until the end of the month. No better time to celebrate Malbec World Day!
