Fetzer Malbec, Mendoza, 2011
The earth friendly winery. Pioneers in sustainability. Established in 1968. 14% less carbon emissions. Love-affair. I have always been quite fond of the Malbecs from our friends to the south, and now I am in love. The wine has a perfect dark violet color, exhibits ripe black plums, cherries, berries and baking spices. Is fruity, robust and satisfying. Plenty of body and structure in this lush supple wine that will companion well with grilled steaks, lamb chops, and a lot of hearty dishes. I love to serve it with anything we cook on the barbeque during the year. A good marriage indeed! Fetzer now uses lighter glass bottles, runs the winery from mostly green energy, recycles, the list goes on - enhancing our heritage of sustainability - Dennis Martin, Winemaker. Alc. 13.0% by volume. Product of Argentina.
