Puffin Malbec 2015


Puffin Wines welcomes Malbec back to the flock!

The 2015 Puffin Malbec is a beautiful red wine with firm tannins.   This full-bodied Malbec delivers aromas of blue berry and toasted coconut.   On the palate, this firmly structured wine offers delicious flavors of blueberry, plum, cedar and coconut.

Malbec’s classic food pairing is red meat and I think a grilled ribeye should be on the dinner plate!  Enjoy this wine with grilled foods that are prepared with a sweet barbecue sauce or grilling spices.  Malbec is extremely food-friendly and can also be served with game, lamb, chili, stews, mushrooms and sausage.

Product Notes

All of the fruit for this Malbec comes from Spofford Station vineyard in Walla Walla, WA.  In the cellar, this wine was aged for 9 months in oak barrels.   Approximately 67% of the oak barrels were French and 33% of the oak was American.
