2006 Broquel Malbec
Tasted: 02 Dec 2008 / Cost When Tasted: $15
Reviewed By: Mike Supple
Type: Dry Red Wine
Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Thoughts: Throw a rack of lamb on the grill (yes, buy some lamb at your local grocery store, it's delicious) and pour a tall glass of this wine. Rich, smooth and easy drinking with a good dose of spice and smoke makes this the perfect companion to grilled meats. A Portobello cheeseburger would stand up very well too, and the acid of the Malbec will cut right through the fat in the gooey swiss cheese that should be melting off it.
Food Suggestions: Lamb, beef, Portobello mushrooms, aged cheese, barbecue.
