Our very own Kristy Korcz started a new OnSugar blog, Target Wine Club — a great way to explore new wines on a budget! First up: an Argentinean Malbec.
I half-expected this hybrid to kick me in the back of my palate on the way down (isn't that what bold malbecs are known for?), but it totally didn't. I was a little disappointed with the "fake" rubber cork (especially since this is an earth-friendly, fair trade vintage), but after a little investigation, it turns out it's probably better this way — my vino won't be "tainted" by all those natural fibers and junk. The bottle said it went well with grilled meats, which I can fully attest to, if by "grilled meats" you mean the heat and serve chicken nuggets from the frozen food aisle. Yum-o.
