Château Nozières Cuvée Ambroise De L'her Malbec 2011, Cahors, Southwest A.C., France: Big, blackened fruit, smoke, tar and brooding dark mystery on the nose and palate of this full-bodied French red wine that is a blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Merlot grapes. Grippy tannins and lots of punch on the palate. Oak aging makes this wine finish with dark spice and smoke. Pair with grilled meats in a hearty sauce or stew, lamb or hard cheeses. Drink: 2013-2017. 276055 14.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. December 6, 2014 Heavenly Hamburger Wine Full Review
Pascual Toso Malbec 2013, Mendoza, Argentina: A terrific, full-bodied red wine for the price! This dark-fruited Argentine wine is made from the country's classic Malbec grape, which produces luscious, round wines like this one. Aromas of blackberry jam, toasty oak, smoke and mocha. Perfect for gourmet hamburgers with all the fixins. Drink: 2013-2016. 35170 14% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 87/100. August 3, 2014 Best Value Red Wine. Best Beef Wine Full Review
