An email that says we would like to send you some wine? Why would I say no to that? I’m not crazy (well, maybe just a little bit) and I love wine. It is a good match if you ask me.
They sent me a 2008 Graffigna Centanario Malbec, it is recommended that you chill the wine to 60 degrees and serve. Pairing recommendations were lamb, grilled beef, pasta with a bolognese sauce, duck with olives.
I liked the simplicity of the label, clean and modern really appeal to me. Winemakers should never underestimated the power of a pretty label!
I chilled the wine for a few minutes, used my handy Rabbit aerator (I love how you can still see the remnants of the legs from aerating on the side of the glass).
This Malbec had really nice dark fruit flavors with notes of black pepper. It retails for $9-$11 and is a great everyday kind of wine. I would definitely purchase this by myself.
