2017 Querencia Mendoza Malbec-Bonarda Blend

Querencia, a term often used in bullfighting, refers to an area of the ring where the bull goes to muster his energy. This red blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Bonarda, from the foothills of the Andes, draws its vim from its purity and sheer likability, displaying a myriad of ripe blue, black and red fruit flavors on the palate, including plum, cherry and blackberry. For a winning combination, pair this robust red with a hearty chili or beef short ribs.
