2007 Bodega Norton Malbec Reserva 

Mendoza, Argentina / $14-$17 Retail

The Malbec grape from Cahors, France, southwest of Bordeaux, has found a welcoming environment in Argentina's Mendoza region. This hearty wine is a good expression of the varietal, exhibiting aromas of ripe red and black fruit, cedar and spice. On the palate, the velvety wine exudes flavors of dark fruit, some toast, pepper and smooth tannins on the long finish. Drink it with meat dishes or firm cheeses. Buy it at: Elio's Wine Warehouse, Langenstein's in Metairie, Cost Plus World Markets and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Galatoire's, Restaurant August, Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse and Vincent's Italian Cuisine. — Brenda Maitland
