Martin Fierro 2008 Malbec

Yesterday I was shopping around the San Clemente Farmer’s Market and somehow managed to wander into a local wine shop (imagine that ūüôā ).¬†¬† I was looking for Malbec¬†for our Sunday night BBQ so I grabbed a¬†few of bottles at different price points for some wine tasting fun.¬† One of the bottles was a 2008 Malbec¬†from Martin Fierro.¬† I was hoping that this¬†bottle would provide some sipping pleasure since it was the lowest priced of the wines I took home.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

I tasted the Martin Fierro¬†right after uncorking and decided to decant it for an hour.¬† After an hour, the young Malbec¬†improved.¬† The wine has aromas of dark berries and cherry with notes of cedar.¬† On the palate are tastes of juicy blackberry¬†and plum with a spicy finish.¬† The tannins are smooth and the wine is easy to drink.¬† For the price, I was happy with what the Malbec¬†delivered.¬† A¬†casual wine to pair with a juicy burger or some¬†wonderful cheeses (including Manchego¬†or Teleggio…some of my faves with Malbec).
