Wine Review: Humberto Canale Malbec Gran Reserva 2006

Malbec, originally a blending grape from Bordeaux, is enjoying its spot in the limelight in Argentina, where it thrives sunder the hot sun of the day and cool nights. Most Malbec-based wines are full-bodied, dominated by dark fruit, oak and spice, and, fittingly for meat-loving Argentinians, pair well with grilled beef. This week's featured wine is the Humberto Canale Malbec Gran Reserva 2006 ($20). As someone who enjoys big, meaty reds, this reserva really caught hold of my taste buds and didn't let go. The blackberry and plum flavors are almost overcome by the wine's charred wood taste. Despite the bold aromas and flavors, this Malbec has a satisfying balance and zip to it.
