Malbec, one of the five classic Bordeaux varietals and the principle grape of Cahors, produces wines that range from fruity and spicy to rich and powerful. Malbec is commonly used as a blending grape except in Argentina where it’s exceptional cultivation results in it normally being bottled as a stand-alone varietal. Requiring extended hang time to fully ripen and develop its characteristic plum flavors, Malbec typically has relatively low acid levels.
