Celebrate World Malbec Day (4/17) with Forever Young Malbec + a Perfect Pairing: Doug’s Nuts!

If you don’t know what a Malbec is, read the next couple of paragraphs for the “scoop” on what the wine is and why is it so popular of late.

What is Malbec Wine? It’s a full-bodied red wine that grows mostly in Argentina. Known for its plump, dark fruit flavors and smoky finish, Malbec wine offers a great alternative to higher priced Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. (Source: http://winefolly.com/review/what-is-malbec-wine/)

Malbec is a wine that seemingly came out of nowhere over the past ten years and quickly has become one of the most popular red wines on the American market. It is a red wine that is a crowd-pleaser and easy to drink, with a ton of juicy fruit flavors. The wine has become so popular it’s actually hard to think of a time when the wine wasn’t everywhere, but its growth in popularity is actually very recent.

Malbec was born in France where it was primarily used as a blending grape in the country’s famous Bordeaux blend. While the grape had excellent potential to be made into the pure Malbec wine we know today, only the French region of Cahors did so, and until recently that wine rarely made its way outside of the country.

Malbec vines were transplanted to Argentina from France where they thrived and suddenly the demand for an alternative to other full-bodied reds whose prices were climbing rapidly. The Malbec wines from Argentina are some of the best around. One of the more popular brands is Forever Young!

I happen to love Malbec wine! I discovered it at a tiny bistro and bar in Hollywood on Sunset. I was meeting a girlfriend for dinner and an event. I asked for a fruitier wine that echoed a bit of Beaujolais in its fruitiness but would linger on the palette and the bartender suggested Malbec. I have been a fan ever since and that’s been about 10 years. When wine brand Forever Young told me about World Malbec Day, I jumped on sharing this information with you early enough for you to head to your favorite wine merchant to buy a couple of bottles!

I LOVE Doug’s Nuts. I was able to try them in early March and my entire family loved them. I invited friends and they all fell in love with the brand. My favorite is Habanero Honey, but all the flavors are great!
