2006 Clos de la Siete Mendoza, Argentina

Don’t cry for me Argentina… and I won’t because this super red grape blend is far too serious to shed anything other than tears of joy.

Made from Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah, this wine smells and tastes purple. Its fragrant combination of plum, blueberry and cherry are expressed not only on the nose, but on the tongue too! It’s a big wine that gets better with age, so drink it now or save it for a special occasion!

Price: $18/bottle

Where To Buy: K&L Wines

Pairing? Since this is a fuller wine with a hint of space, balance it out with a dish all the same. Try this yummy recipe for Whiskey Grilled Baby Back Ribs!
