Wine Whore Score = 7.9/10 Points (stats below)




Summary:
As a huge fan of the thin-skinned, inky, dark colored Malbec grape, I was elated to taste �The Wait� Malbec Rose. Made from 100% Malbec grape from the Mendoza region of Argentina, this wine�s exciting pink hue is developed from grapes left for 18 hours of maceration with their skin.

The wait to taste this wine was unbearable. Curiosity and anticipation took hold of me as my eyes were illuminated by this glowing amber gem. I could sense this rare breed begging to be enjoyed as I gaze at it encapsulated within its transparent glass confine. The contents of which radiated like a dusky sunset caressing the shore�s edge as it slowly, slips away into the darkness of nightfall.

Pouring the wine into my anxious glass released a sea of hot pink nectar. Like sunset�s fingers dancing along the ocean, it anxiously flowed around the rounded bowl of my glass. As it washed upon my tongue, I found myself submerged in the scenery, sights, and smells which calmly permeate from the finale of a spring day. From the raspberry and wild cherry flavor to the round and luscious finish, this wine is not afraid to flaunt its personality. The gentle twin sister of Malbec, this Rose embodies the finest characteristics of this grape variety while also adding a sweet, fruity, edge, making this wine crisp and refreshing.


Recommended Food Pairing:
For fun, I tasted this wine alongside barbeque rotisserie chicken. The spicy and sweet coating of the poultry marinade made a welcome companion to the palate of this sweet Malbec. Refreshing enough to drink alone, it would easily pair well with tuna, green salad, pasta, or even spicy Asian dishes.
