Viña Cobos Felino Malbec 2019, Mendoza, Argentina: Produced by Paul Hobbs, Viña Cobos Felino 2019 Malbec is from a perfect vintage and ready to drink now. This medium-plus-bodied, unfiltered Malbec is beautifully balanced with dark berry, blueberry, violets, blackberry, cassis and savoury spice flavours. Produced from hand-selected grapes from mountain vineyards in the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyon districts of the Mendoza wine region, planted at altitudes of 2,300 and 3,800 feet above sea level. The cool nights high on the mountainside where the vines for this wine are planted provide a lively vibrancy on this Malbec. Pour with steaks from the grill. Malbec food pairings: beef,  turkey, tomato sauces, hamburgers, spaghetti and meat balls.

Megalomaniac Narcissist Riesling 2016, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: Love the lime zest and minerality in this lovely Niagara Riesling. Pair it with fresh seafood and peering at your image in a reflecting pool. Riesling is a grape that reflects the terroir and place where it's cultivated, thus the wine's name and mirror image on the label. Riesling food pairings: roast chicken, spicy pasta dishes, shrimp tempura, grilled salmon. Drink: 2017 - 2021 67587 10.9% M 750 mL $18.95 Score: 90/100. February 2021. Best Value White Wine Full Review Add to Shopping Cart
