Dona Paula Malbec 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Some bread and yeast on the nose, burns off to reveal soft fruit
Fruit core on the palate
Peppery finish

Malbec can be very interesting wine and is widely available in most places now. Argentina has produced a lot of wine with this grape that was once limited in its use as a blending grape in France.

This particular wine shows classic Malbec character with a fruity core and a peppery finish. I enjoyed this with a group of four and an island full of various appetizers. It seems like a fairly priced wine at approximately $15. I paid $14 and have seen this wine priced from $12 to $17 this year. Raise a glass!
