This Malbec is produced from old-vine grapes from the Enrique Foster estate 3,000 feet above sea level. The medium-bodied, intensely focused wine is made without oak and offers a fresh, pure fruit expression as well as some complexity. It offers aromas of ripe blackberry and spice followed by bright fruit flavors of plum and cherry with soft, lush tannins, a balanced acidity and long finish. Open an hour before serving to aerate. It pairs well with a variety of foods including steaks, grilled sausages, barbecue, empanadas, leg of lamb, burgers and hard cheeses. Buy it at: Dorignac's, Bacchanal, Cellars of River Ridge and Acquistapace's Covington Supermarket. Drink it at: Mike's on the Avenue, La Boca and Bar Tonique. — Brenda Maitland
