O. Fournier 2008 Alfa Crux Malbec – Wine of the Week
Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Varietals: 100 percent Malbec
Alcohol: 15.1 percent
Tasting Notes: The O. Fournier Group produces wines in Argentina, Chile and Spain, and uses local winemakers in each region to produce wines that are internationally recognizable. The 2008 Alfa Crux Malbec hails from their Uco Valley vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina, which sits in a picturesque location at the foot of the Andes Mountains. This dark crimson wine boasts aromas of ripe fruit with notes of sweet dark cherry and spice. On the palate, intense flavors of blackberry and creamy oak lead to a long, smoky finish. The elegant profile of this full-bodied wine is perfect for the changing temperatures and rich, meaty foods that are coming into season.
Food Pairings: Wild boar, beef stew, cheese and mushroom enchiladas
