Argentine Malbec has skyrocketed in popularity over the past 10 years. With wines like today's offer, that should come as no surprise. The Punta de Flechas – owned in part by France's esteemed Rothschild family – is a favorite in Argentina. Several Lot18 staffers who visited Argentina not long ago drank this wine every chance they got. The 2011 Punta is great not just for sipping on its own but for pairing with grilled meats and vegetables. Plus, the price is right. Stock up on this red for upcoming warm-weather gatherings.

2011 Punta de Flechas Mendoza Malbec

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied and weighty, this red has intense notes of blackberry, cherry, plum and spice. All that fruit is supported by ripe tannins and firm acidity, making for a serious Malbec that calls out for food. Pair this wine with a hearty steak or any meat on the grill. No need to cellar this selection, so drink up now or hold through 2013.
