La Mascota 2020 Malbec is produced from sustainably-grown grapes and is a great value Argentinean Malbec at $17. Love the texture and layers of juicy, ripe plum, blackberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, roasted herbs, smoky vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours on this fresh, smooth and medium-plus-bodied Malbec. Finishes with a mouthful of dark berry fruit and on a citrus note. Drink or hold.

Malbec food pairings: pepper-crusted steak, wild mushrooms, steak fajitas, meat fondue, bittersweet chocolate.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
