Alta Vista Terroir Selection Malbec 2007

I've recently posted a review of an Argentina Syrah, so I decided to finish up my Argentina wines and open a Malbec I recently received for review, The Alta Vista Terroir Selection Malbec 2007.($25)
The d'Aulan family produces wines in several wine-growing regions around the world, from France - the country of origin - to Hungary and Argentina, where they created Alta Vista in 1998, in the search of the greatest qualities of two emblematic varieties: Malbec and the Argentinian white grape,Torront├ęs. The result is the perfect combination of French savoir faire and Argentinean passion.
After a few years of tasting both red and white wines from Argentina, I am very rapidly becoming a fan.
Nice red garnet color with aromas of blackberry, a little chocolate, a little plum with flavors of mocha and blackberry filling the mouth.  The finish was a little tart and medium long.  Paired very nicely with grilled chicken kabobs.  Highly recommended.  Best price can be found on-line at Winechateau.com.
