2009 The Show Malbec redux

It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon out here in Red Red Wine On A Sundayland. Got another favorite open today - a 2009 The Show Malbec. A stellar Argentinian Malbec from the Mendoza region. Yep - this bottle is just as good as the one I had back in January. Tonight, I got a couple of chickens on the Rotisserie. Throwing a few fresh rosemary twigs in the grill to give it a good smoked flavor. Should work well with the Malbec.

Hit a couple of record shows this weekend - the KXPR Record sale on Friday night and a local Record Swap this morning - got about 70 45s to sort through now - wish me luck.

Here's some propoganda on the wine:

Like a Hatch print for an Elvis gig, The Show grabs your attention. Big and bold, it is dominated by full flavors of dried black cherries, jammy preserves and complex toasty, vanilla, and spicy oak. Learn more at

Production Notes:

The Show combines grapes from the Central Coast, Sonoma County, Lake County, Lodi and Monterey AVA’s. Anchored by full-bodied Cabernet, it also features Petite Sirah which gives it a deep ruby color and a hint of violets on the nose. The Show is aged in French and American oak.

Other Notes:

86% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Petite Sirah 2% Zinfandel
