Lo Tengo Malbec

Lo Tengo Malbec

Varietal: Malbec
Region: Argentina
Cost: $12

Dark coloring with a nose of ripe fruit.  Ripe fruit at the beginning with a smooth finish featuring just a touch of tannins.  Will pair well with red meat, red sauce, or pizza.

Recommendations: I’ll be the first to admit that my wife and I picked up this bottle because of the label.  Hologram style label will change depending on how you look at it, but you’ll quickly forget about it after you’ve started drinking this smooth red.

Paired with a meal of pasta with red sauce and meatballs, the smoothness of the wine did an excellent job of cutting through the acidity of the tomato sauce.  I imagine this would have paired really well with a good steak, and almost lament that I didn’t get the chance to enjoy it with one.

If you’re already a fan of Malbecs, the Lo Tengo is worth checking out for the label alone, and if you’ve never had Malbec before, this is a great one to start with.  Definitely worth the money and I recommend you try it.
