Sur Andino Argentina Sierra Los Andes Mendoza Malbec 2018 $21

Hello malbec my old friend! Grown in a vineyard in Ugarteche (ooh-garr-tetch-eh) in the southern part of the Luján de Cuyo (loo-harn-de-koo-yoh) in Mendoza, Argentina’s largest wine region, this little red is so soft and velvety and warm, it’s like a spicy, berry-laden mink blanket for your mouth. Not blankets made of the furry, semiaquatic, carnivorous mammals of the genera Neogale and Mustela silly! I mean the fluffy, warm blankets you buy from Briscoes in shades like ‘azure’, ‘fuschia’ and ‘peacock’. Sip with smoky, grilled lamb chops.
