Malbec has shot from relative obscurity to international fame. If you drink Malbec only from Argentina, you’re missing out on a lot – like this great bottle.
High Mountain Malbec
Colorado Wine, Are You Crazy?
The Bookcliff Malbec has a robust flavor. It is a big wine with an alcohol level of 13.8%. There are bold flavors of jammy blackberry and flowing vanilla. On the night we uncorked, I enjoyed this more than many Malbec wines from Argentina and California. It wasn’t sloppy fruity and had a nice complexity. The tannins are relaxed (and so were we!).
At about $18, this is a tasty value. Malbec is a crowd pleasing wine and Bookcliff’s small production version is worth seeking out. Thanks, Kurt and Lisa!
