Malbec grapes

Originating in France, Malbec has become a booming trend in Argentina and Chile, where the grape is able to flourish. With a deep, inky-red color and intense, complex flavor — particularly the distinct taste of plum — Malbec often has notes of blackberry, pepper, tobacco and leather. The varietal’s robust tannins make it perfect for pairing with steak. These are the best previously featured Malbecs we've tasted, starting with our highest rated wines.
