We asked me if I liked red wine, I said yes. So he asked if it was okay if he ordered for me - he wanted me to try some of his favorite wine.
Of course, I said yes.
It was love by first taste.
It's a wine from Mendoza, Argentina. The winemaker notes that the grapes are thoroughly ripened before taken off of the vine.
This is a delicious, rich, full bodied red wine...yum!
It has flavors of black fruit, cocoa, black spices, and cherries.
Due to the memories and the $15-$20 price tag in grocery stores, we usually save this or a special occasion or holiday. (And the wonderful memories of one of our first dates!) I will note, that not all stores have them. I can't find it at Publix down in Florida, but I can at Target. Some restaurants have this, as well...I've seen it at a Ruby Tuesday in New York, as a matter of fact!
The next time you're dying to try something new, eleqant, and want a red wine - give Layer Cake's Malbec a go!
The Tampa Bay Times recently named Layer Cake: Malbec Wine of the Week!
OH and don't get rid of your wine cork - don't forget you can make wine cork magnets :)
Have you ever tried this?! Thoughts?
