Originally used as a blending grape in France’s Bordeaux region, Malbec has found its true home in Argentina’s Mendoza region. There, the grape produces darkly fruity wines with hints of black pepper and leather—like a traditional rustic country red, but with riper, fuller fruit. Malbecs are often very affordable, too, and go wonderfully with steak and roasts, hearty stews and grilled sausages.
