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.

Napoleon III demanded a classification of Bordeuax's best wines, which was completed in 1855, and was based solely on market prices for the wines at the time. The rankings have remained unchanged except for Château Mouton, which more than a century later successfully lobbied to be promoted from Second Growth to First Growth.
