Hess 2016 Select Malbec - Red Wine

Red Wine by Hess from Argentina, South America. This fruit-forward Malbec is garnet red with a violet hue and has pleasant aromas of raspberry, cherry, and pomegranate. Supple and smooth, the dominant flavors of cherries, Red Delicious apples and crabapple are accented with cassis, nutmeg, and allspice. A long lingering finish highlights a light touch of oak. Malbec is a very versatile grape that pairs wonderfully with dishes such as lentil soup, brisket, cassoulet .

Mild to moderate sharp cheeses, such as a Stilton Cheddar, are quite memorable with this wine. read more
