Mendoza, Argentina / $12-$14 Retail

This bargain-priced Malbec delivers lush, ripe fruit in a robust style. Forty percent of the wine was aged in American oak casks for 12 months. In the glass, the wine offers complex aromas of black cherry, leathery notes and hints of chocolate, spice and earth. On the palate, supple textures and flavors of plum, blackberry jam, cassis, black currant and vanilla lead to a rich, lengthy finish. Decant an hour before serving. Drink it with grilled or roasted meats, fowl and game, hearty soups and stews, root vegetables, cheeses and pasta dishes. Buy it at: Langenstein's in Metairie and Fresh Market in Mandeville. Drink it at: Sid-Mar's Restaurant & Bar, 55 Fahrenheit and 5 Fifty 5. — Brenda Maitland
