Wine picks
The Edmonton Journal Published: Wednesday, October 01
Luigi Bosca Malbec Reserva, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina, 2005, $23. Memorable, elegant, full-bodied wine with layers of coffee, berries, pepper and fig on the nose. On the palate, cocoa and dark licorice framed in soft, sweet tannins. Aged 12 months in French barriques. Cellaring into 2010 will bring rewards. Will pair beautifully with roast or grilled red meat, venison and strong, pungent cheese.

He managed to grab two bottles.
