Septima Mendoza Malbec 2014 $22 ★★★½

If you were thinking the national animal of Argentina was the llama you’d be wrong.  It’s Bolivia’s.  Argentina’s is the rufous hornero, or, as they say in the islands, the ‘red ovenbird’.   But in my opinion their national animal should be Malbec.  It might be a wine, but it’s muscular and meaty, furry around the edges, and has layers of spice, cocoa and leathery, peppery layers.  Perfect pet material I think, and a stunner with spicy Chilli Con Carne.
