[...]  Other tips include Treat Yourself and Have Fun.  I love lists that include that kind of stuff. Dr. Vino:  This is an old post on Malbec from 06 but the graphic reproduction (presumably done on Microsoft [...]

I am a huge fan of Malbec wines. I love the deep, rich flavors. Give me some nice dark chocolate and a glass of Malbec and I am a happy guy.

Put it in context. Go to one of the many open-air steakhouses at the outskirts of Buenos Aires. All you can eat steaks from the free-range cattle of the pampas, washed down with all you can drink Mendoza Malbec, and happy portenos all around. Worth the price of the ticket! Ed

I'm surprised there are so many haters here of Malbec. As if we've never had an overly simplistic Cab before, or a Chard for that matter. Just because there is hype doesn't mean it should be looked down upon, necessarily.

I am a wine lover, I am from Paris and I think that Malbec is a type of red that is most defenetely for people that does not know wine. Is very smooth, easy to say good wine if you cant taste anything complex.

hi, first to be said, i'm from mendoza, living somewhere else, far from the sunny, dry, hot weather. That one, with the huge thermical difference between day and night, that gives you a break during the summer. The amazing andes behind and the just-melted-ice water... i'm not a tiny grape, but i think, that's a beautiful place to became wine I don't know much about wine, i just enjoy it. And I cannot think about something, like an utopian, "multi-porpoise" wine. I think, that each moment, has its own. I cannot figure myself sitting on a nice sofa, with soft light, some jazz background, a cigar, and a malbec in my right hand. But I do can see me, sitting in a nice table, full of beloved people and "carne asada", with many opened malbec bottles around. I see malbec and asado (and many other meals), as the perfect couple. The former, cleans the tongue in the most beautiful non-possessive way, letting the meat to taste always, like the first bite... and that's enjoyable long life to "mendocinian" malbec and "los asados" themselves!

Clos Triguedina Cahors-- was there in July and tasted wines from 1998 until present. Different levels from Intro, Clos Triguedina, New Black Wine, Prince Probus. Baldes is an incredible winemaker and the wines show this. Some are for early drinking and others for the long term. I'm enjoying these more than many bordeaux. Very interesting and complex wines. Not as fruity as the S. American, but IMO much moe interesting. Anyone who is not trying malbec is missing something indeed.

Let me suggest 2 greats malbecs from wineries located in the Mendoza area: Tempus Alba and Alta Vista.

The Malbec grape is one of the classic Bordeaux varietals that fell out of favor in France and found a home in Argentina. In the western province of Mendoza with arid, sunny growing conditions, few natural pests and abundant irrigation water, Malbec has blossomed into a dense red wine loaded with fruit flavors that has tremendous appeal to American tastes. But it wasn’t until the 1990s that Argentina got serious about producing higher-quality wines that could compete in the world market.

Then again, I'm listening to Tom Petty and having a Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Yeah, I think "HG" hit the mark, I love wine anytime and heavy tannins are to me a turn off. I think Malbecs are a great alternative, especially to people like me who enjoy wine for it's substance...alone...If I hear another person telling me to look at the glycerin, I'll puke! Lol
