Norton Malbec 2006
This Argentinian Malbec is a medium bodied wine in which the tannins seem to prevail over the red fruit notes. It is thus very dry and slightly acidic in the finish. It will do well with such assertive dishes as barbecued ribs but was not quite subtle enough for our veal goulash. The price, $8.99 in PA, is on the high side for what you're getting (NJ $6.99).
