Paulucci Malbec 2014
WINE OVERVIEW

‘Find your passion’ with Angel Paulucci riding through his Ugarteche vineyards in his 1933 Model A. His Malbec boasts red fruits, violet aromas, and a soft caramel finish.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant red color with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, and violets waft from the glass along with notes of toasty oak. On the palate, the fresh berry flavors mingle with spice notes and there’s a hint of soft caramel on the finish. This is a creamy, medium-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life.

Food Pairing

It goes great with everything from meats, to pasta, to mild cheeses. Unique recipe ideas include: Duck and Smoked Pork Cassoulet, Lamb burger with aged Manchego and Smoked Paprika, or Caramelized Onion and Butternut Squash Tart with Goat Cheese and Thyme.
