Doña Paula Los Cardos Malbec 2019

Mendoza, ArgentinaThe thistles, or Los Cardos, are desert flowers known for their intensity of colour and super sharp thorns, but their true meaning is that of a stoplight, as in stop and plant your grapevines here. In Argentina, that is at 1050 metres above sea level on the Andes' breezy side slopes. The colour is deep, with bright blueberry, black plum, blackberry, and a long, cool, linear attack. Fresh and spicy, it's not hard to see why this is such a fun wine to pair with hamburgers, beef tacos, or even an Asian black bean dish. Ready to drink and affordable.
