Dos Minas Malbec $16

Beef Chicken Pork
Malbec

A mysterious Argentine lover: Dark ripe plums, roasted meat, a hint of smoke.

Nose of dark ripe plums, violets, roasted meat and a mysterious earthy note. On the palate it is complex yet approachable, with some of the same fruit flavors, as well as a slight peppery note, all smoothed out but not covered up by the light touch of used oak. The Cafayate personality really shines through in this delightful wine, and it is an ideal beef wine but can also go with lighter dishes that call out for ripe fruit in a wine.

“Mina” is old school Argentine slang for “girl,” which has evolved to be used to affectionately refer to females of any age. This is a project created by two girls, one from Cafayate, Salta and the other from Buenos Aires by way of California, hence appropriately called “Dos Minas.”
