Nieto Senetiner Reserva Malbec 2010

Nieto Senetiner Reserva Malbec 2010At first glance the appealing deep ruby, almost purple color lures you in to this wine. This 100% Malbec from Mendoza Argentina has a lovely nose exhibiting plum and red cherries. Aged in French oak for 12 months, gives this medium-full bodied red that hint of vanilla. It presents all you would expect from a  true Malbec with a nice complexity and balance. It is also incredibly food friendly. We discovered this solid Malbec while enjoying Spanish tapas and it paired well with most dishes. Our dishes included grilled lamb chops, shrimp, chorizo, skirt steak with chimichurri and grilled chicken kabobs.

At around $12 this one is a fabulous buy!
