Day #4 of the year.

Alta Vista Estate Malbec

Today, January 4th, is National Thank God for Mondays Day! Before you say “Why on earth would I do that?”, hear me out. Upon hearing about this concept, I also reacted with skepticism – who likes Mondays, let alone THE FIRST MONDAY AFTER NEW YEAR’S? However, the message behind the idea is that we should view Mondays as a chance to start over or embark on new journeys, rather than dread what the week has in store for us. Sometimes the best medicine for a dour mood is a brand-new state of mind – and nothing will turn a frown upside down like the Alta Vista Estate Malbec. This tantalizing red is comprised of 100% Malbec grapes from Mendoza, Argentina. It can be paired with a variety of dishes – ranging from traditional steak to Argentinian asado. If you’re looking to start the new year off on the right foot, make sure you incorporate this wine into your meals this week.

ORIGIN

Mendoza, Argentina

Rice Type

Joto One Cup sake

Tasting Notes

Deep red color with ruby hues. Intense in nose, with ripe red fruit aroma, such as plum, and spices. It is round, silky and has great concentration in mouth. To be served slightly chilled between 59ºF and 61ºF.

Created by potrace 1.16, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2019

Food Match

Red meat, preferably medium rare. Typical Argentinean asado. Pasta with tomato or cream based sauce. Roasted chicken or beef.
