Bodegas Finca la Estacada, Malbec Ocho y Medio 2019 750ML



The Bottle: Malbec originates in France but is now grown all over the world, most famously in Argentina. It is a thin-skinned grape that needs more sun and heat than other red grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot.

The Producer: Finca La Estacada is a family-owned winery in Castilla-La Mancha, founded in 2001. Their winemaker, Todd Blomberg, is an American who has been making world-renowned wines in Spain since 2003.

The Why:This sustainably-farmed red has a pretty, bright nose with hints of wild flowers and blackberries. It's an easy-to-drink, gulpable red that has less tannin and dark notes than its Argentine counterparts.
