Although Mendoza is known for its plush, varietal Malbecs, this unique blend will have you hooked. Comprised of 60/40 Malbec and Bonarda, the wine shows a gorgeous purple-red in the glass, giving way to a full-bodied yet balanced wine. Flavors of ripe cherry with spicy, chocolatey undertones dominate, with a bright acidity keeping the wine together. Pair with smoked meats, hearty meat sauces, or skirt steak.
