Brookwood Vineyards: Malbec Madness
By Winemaker
Malbec is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. Ripe fruit flavors of plums and blackberry give it a jammy characteristic. The tannins are typically a bit tight and the earthy, wood-like appeal makes for a fairly rustic wine.
Recently we have been enjoying: 2005 Aqua de Piedra Malbec

Double blind wine tasting | Wine Tasting Guy

From Argentina comes the very effervescent, nonvintageTrapiche Extra Brut. The Mendoza wine is 70 percent chardonnay, but that’s where the similarity to European and American blends ends. It’s also 20 percent semillon, 10 percent malbec. The Extra Brut offers a hint of pineapple and more bubbles than the economy. And the Trapiche is a fine alternative to countless higher-priced wines, too. A bottle: $15.
