Marion’s Favorites: World Malbec Day

Today is World Malbec Day!  I know for Malbec Wine drinkers around the world we look forward to this holiday. However, this year’s celebration will be a little more subdued due to COVID19 (AKA Coronavirus).

I want to celebrate and send a virtual toast to all the Malbec drinkers out there.  Have a glass of your favorite Malbec today and appreciate all the blessings you have in your life.

Both of these Malbec wines (Pascual Toso and Amalaya) are my favorites.  You can get them under $12 in most grocery stores.  I would write that Pascual Toso is a little sweeter than the Amalaya, but both have a smooth finish and can go down easy.

Malbec is known for its ample, dark fruit flavors and smoldering finish. This wine is a great alternative to a Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah. Malbec pairs well with dark meat poultry, dark meat turkey and lean red meat. Also it is good with duck and lamb. The wine fairs well with mushrooms, green and red bell peppers, and black beans. The biggest Malbec Wine Region is in Argentina. However, the United States, France, Chile, South Africa, & Australia have a region for the wine.

Happy World Malbec Day!!!
